The Healthy Kids Running Series was created by Jeff Long, Founder and President of Pattison Sports Group, to provide kids with a positive, educational, and fun experience in the world of running. To combat the increasing rates of child obesity in America, Jeff designed a running program that would motivate kids to be healthy and active and provide a fun environment to improve their self-esteem. Jeff believed the program would encourage kids to adopt a “Get Up and Go” attitude.
In 2016, HKRS impacted more than 22,000 youth runners across 150 locations and 30+ states. Help us grow our mission and introduce more children to running in a positive, fun and educational atmosphere.
