Every child deserves a chance to GO FARdonate to go far

A fourth-grade girl starting GO FAR recently asked her teacher if she could run in her winter boots, because they are her only shoes.

We're hearing more of those stories: teachers asking for more scholarships than ever before, more schools asking for help to purchase the GO FAR curriculum. Your gift helps more kids at more schools, especially those most in need, discover the fun of physical activity, learn to make smart food choices, and experience success.

You can be part of the solution as we face the alarming epidemic of childhood obesity. Help us encourage a new generation of runners and health enthusiasts.
