Roots are critical to every living being. Whether visible on Earth, or existing intangibly in the form of common bonds that connect us all, roots are the foundation of life.

RUNNING ROOTSTM uses the power of running as the centerpiece in its mission to instill in today’s youth an understanding of the importance of health, fitness and camaraderie. We believe that running, together with other focused fitness programs and character-building activities, can provide a solid foundation for children and lay the ground work for a lifetime of physical, mental and emotional well-being.
