The RRCA supports my local running club, Lake Grapevine Runners and Walkers (RAW). The RRCA and RAW promote running and walking as an active lifestyle, one in which the whole family can participate. Supporting and encouraging physical activity amongst America's youth is more important than ever, and I am glad to be a part of these fabulous organizations. I have witnessed the positive changes that occur when a family takes fitness seriously. Five out of seven in our house are proud to call themselves runners now. Five years ago, only one could.

The RRCA promotes running and a healthy lifestyle to its members through their affiliation with the numerous running clubs throughout the country. I have participated in many running events around the country and the RRCA makes these races possible by providing insurance to these clubs that host the races.
Road races used to have male runners as their largest percentage of participants, but in recent years that has changed to where females are sometimes the largest participant category. I would say this change has been brought about through efforts of the RRCA.
As the RRCA continues to reach out and support youth running programs I believe they can greatly affect the health of America's adolescents and the future obesity rate of adults.
"Get 'em while they're young". I'm a firm believer in that statement. If we can develop and instill a love of running/exercising in our youth, we will give the future adults a way to stay active and healthy throughout their life.

RRCA is a great tool for the running community of all ages. The website and emails are filled with imformative resourses and information. The kids program is a blessing for many organizations that could not survive without their support.

The RRCA is dedicated to promoting a healthy lifesyle for everyone. But to reach today's youth is vital with physical education being phased out in some schools due to budget cuts. And with the rise of childhood obesity and type 2 diabetes this is vital. Keep up the great work RRCA; the running community is behind you.

As a member of Pamakid Runners and the Dolphin South End, the RRCA has helped to included more people into the community of runners from women in the 1970s to underserved youth of today. The RRCA provides information and assistance to running clubs and events to better serve runners and their local communities.

The RRCA awarded my program a grant called Kids Run the Nation. I used the monies to provide shoes and running clothes and incentives like medals to encouraged troubled youth to take up running instead of turning to substance abuse, crime, and gangs.

increase the size of the national office staff so they can reach out to more people.

It is important for organizations like the RRCA to demonstrate that their purpose is not just to promote running, but rather to help others where they can, to demonstrate the value of a healthy and athletic lifestyle AND to be active in these ideals.

My local running club, Lake Grapevine
Runners and Walkers, has outstanding leaders who work hard for RRCA and give generously of their time. This is a worthy organization, deserving of everyone's support, not just runners. Spareribs LaMothe

As president and coach of my running club, I credit the RRCA for the courage to start and confidence to continue leading this club. I knew nothing about the actual running of a track club before we started. With the help of the RRCA State Rep, coaching certification and continuing education classes, and the consistent outreach of the national office, my club continues to grow in knowledge and numbers. It's comforting to know that if I have a question, I can get it answered in a very timely manner. My community as a whole has benefited in so many ways! From Kids'camps and training programs addressing the obesity crisis, run/walks raising funds and providing opportunities to exercise, to seminars on nutrition and other topics. One of our local junior high schools is currently in the process of applying for a Lowe's ToolBox for Education Grant. If it wasn't for the RRCA identifying these opportunities, we would have never known. I give the RRCA A++.
