Running For Youth Program
The SYTA Youth Foundation Run Team uses long distance running/walking as a symbol of endurance and hope. The goal is simple - to raise money for youth to travel with their schools or youth organizations. Participants on the Run Team fundraise on behalf of the SYTA Youth Foundation, train and participate in a marathon or half-marathon, and run in honor of a student who has been chosen to receive a Road Scholarship. In exchange for participation, Run Team members receive roundtrip airfare, lodging, and entry into the selected Marathon. The 2012 Run Team will be participating in the Minneapolis Marathon/Half Marathon in June of 2012. Click here for more details.
