Funding for fitness programs.
In 1991, the Southern Arizona Roadrunners established the Children’s Fitness Fund to provide money for community endeavors that promote life-long fitness for children. The programs funded by SAR focus on the development of healthy lifestyles for children, with emphasis on running related activities. SAR seeks to fund programs that prepare children for a lifetime of individual exercise, regardless of physical condition or ability. Each SAR race contributes approximately 10% of their profits to finance the Children’s Fitness Fund.
