Review for Road Runners Club of America Inc, Arlington, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

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.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

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

Role:  Board Member & I coach high school students at a juvenile detention camp.
