Grant Opportunities


There are many groups and individuals who are interested in helping programs that are working to fight childhood obesity. Contact these groups in your community to find sponsors and scholarship funds.

  1. Contact your local colleges or universities to see if they would sponsor a child or group of children in your program to cover their club materials or race fees.

  2. Meet with local civic clubs and rotary clubs to introduce the program and gain support.

  3. Contact your local health department and see if they have any programs or funds that can assist in covering the costs of your GO FAR Club.

  4. Contact your local Child Care Resources and Referral agency to find more local resources.

  5. Get in touch with a local running club or race-organizing committee that puts on local running races in your area or surrounding counties.

  6. Talk to the owners of stores that sell running shoes, who are often well connected in the running community.

  7. Send out flyers to local businesses, asking them to sponsor the purchase of your GO FAR curriculum or race fees.


Additionally, there are many grant opportunities that support building a healthy kids running club...
