The American Running Association (ARA), along with the American Medical Athletic Association (AMAA), promotes healthy living and active lifestyles among all Americans. Together, the two organizations are dedicated to supporting runners of all ages through education and specialized programs as well as increasing the physical activity levels of America’s youth through walking and running.
The NATIONAL RUN A MILE DAYS is a public outreach campaign with a mission to get more boys and girls excited about becoming fit and healthy with running the mile as a starting point. Donations made to the NATIONAL RUN A MILE DAYS YOUTH FUND will directly benefit the events, held annually throughout the month of May in schools across the country.
Please support our ongoing efforts to deter youth obesity through grassroots programing. Funds will support distribution of free materials including the 8-week walk/run training schedule, posters, and event t-shirts and will help sustain onsite activities.
