The RRCA will award over $15,000-$20,000 in small grants ranging from $500-$1,000 to organizations with the IRS 501(c)(3) designation that host multi-week, youth running programs geared towards school-aged children. Schools or non-profit organizations that provide an organized after-school running program are eligible to apply as well. The Kids Run the Nation Grants will not fund youth races or entry fees for competitive teams.
