Running For Youth Program

RFYlogoThe 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 Roads Scholarship. In exchange for participation, Run Team members receive roundtrip airfare, lodging, and entry into the selected Marathon. The 2014 the Run Team will be participating in the upcoming Virginia Running Festival Half Marathon/5k. Click here for more details.
