Southern Arizona Roadrunners began the FitKidz running program in 2013 in order to provide experiences that start children on a path of being physically active for life. FitKidz aims to improve the health and wellness of our local community by engaging kids and their families in fun and healthy activities. Learn More

We need your help to fund SAR's ever-growing & 100% free FitKidz running program!As we all agree, the benefits of running and walking are endless for our physical, mental and social wellbeing. We aim to ensure that as many local youth as possible can experience those benefits through SAR's free FitKidz one mile races and free FitKidz running camps!So far over 4,500 kids have crossed a FitKidz finish line. At FitKidz races each child is given a free FitKidz racing series shirt, a finisher ribbon, and an official time just like any official SAR event.Our mission is to keep programs free for all kids, so they are not cost prohibitive to any family. However, these volunteer run programs do have real costs associated with them. We have big dreams of getting more and more youth involved, but we need your help! Every $10 covers the cost of one FitKidz finisher and every $20 covers the cost of a FitKidz camp participant! Our goal is to have 1500-2000 finishers this year in our FitKidz races and to offer more than one 60-child FitKidz camp! ... See MoreSee Less
