The Johnstown chapter is part of a national organization which aims to help kids build the foundation of healthy lifestyle.

“Healthy Kids Running Series is designed to combat the increasing rates of child obesity in America,” said Jeff Long, Healthy Kids Running Series founder. “My goal is to motivate and inform kids to be healthy and active. We are providing a fun environment to improve their self-esteem and inspire them to adopt a ‘Get Up and Go’ attitude. The support and growth of our series have confirmed our value and mission.”
