This Week's Program: Shane Bauer & Linda Hanson: Grandma's Marathon Young Athletes Foundation
A main focus of the Grandma's Marathon is to promote the growth of young athletes. That’s why we have created the Young Athletes Foundation (YAF). Through this arm of Grandma’s Marathon, we help community members and businesses that inspire kids to be healthy. Since its inception, the YAF has contributed more than $1,000,000 to area nonprofit youth athletic organizations.
Programs of the YAF include Saturday morning and Wednesday night at the Races, the running shoe program and their grant and UMD Scholarship programs.
The Young Athletes Foundation is able to provide this support through benefit races and special fundraising. The Saint Fennessy 4KFitger’s 5KPark Point 5-Miler, North End Nightmare 5K, and Minnesota Mile are the basis of these fundraising efforts.
