Running for Youth

The SYF Running for Youth Run Team uses long distance running and walking as a symbol of endurance and hope all while raising funds for students to experience the gift of travel - impacting the lives of youth with every step.

Since 2009, SYF's Running for Youth program has raised more than $350,000 and provided travel experiences for hundreds of children in need.

Thank you to our Running for Youth Runners who participated in the 2018 Seattle Rock 'N' Roll Run and the 2018 Wineglass Marathon! These amazing runners fundraised over $13,000, equating to 27 Road Scholarships! Thank you to our Running for Youth Partners: Fly My Group and Hard Rock Cafe

Running for Youth is sponsored by Fly My Group.
