ING Run For Something Better Program Details:

  • Students traditionally run in school for a minimum of 8 weeks leading up to a race day event.
  • Running starts in increments of ¼ mile and increase to 1-2 miles over the duration of the program adding up to a half marathon, full marathon or multiple marathons.
  • Educational components are part of the program focusing on running, kids’ fitness, nutrition, goal setting and may also include local area history and geography.
  • Students who complete the program are able to attend a race day event in association with an ING-sponsored race, “final mile run”, medals, t-shirts, celebrity appearances and, of course, orange laces!

As the corporate sponsor for ING Run For Something Better, ING sponsors race day events. This is where the kids get to run the last leg of their program – often a last mile. These exciting race days happen a day before, or even the day of, the major ING-sponsored race. In San Francisco, kids run at Golden Gate Park just days before the ING Bay to Breakers race. In New York, kids run at Central Park just two days before the ING New York City Marathon, and so on.

Race day – is the highlight of the youth running program in many children’s lives. They’ve practiced hard at school, working each week to run farther. Then they get to finish off their running commitment in front of a cheering crowd at a bigger-than-life event. What excitement for our young runners to achieve their goals!

You’re welcome to come out to race day events to cheer the children on or try your hand as a volunteer, yet another way to show your support for fighting obesity in children. See our FAQs page for more information about volunteer opportunities.
