About

Run SA Youth (RSAY) is a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization holding free running-based workouts in local parks to kids ages 6-12.  RSAY workouts are held weekly and regular daily attendance at every workout is not required. Kids are welcome to attend workouts as their schedules allow. No experience is necessary and all levels are welcome! 

Run SA Youth provides hydration, healthy snacks, equipment, and coaching at every single workout! We want kids in San Antonio to have access to tools to build healthy habits for life. Run SA Youth meet-ups are incentivized meaning that with some effort, kids can earn stickers, water bottles, and even new shoes! Click our Schedule for current date & locations!

 

Our Goals:

  • ​Increase healthy, active lifestyles in SA youth.
  • Reduce the number of individuals living with Type-2 Diabetes and childhood obesity. 
  • Address the impact of food deserts on the community surrounding our Program locations.
  • Empower individuals to take an active leadership role in the health and wellness of their community.
  • Increase youth accessibility to SA parks and green spaces.

Testimonial

My son wouldn't go outside to play because he prefers his iPad but now all I have to say is, "you want to go for a run?" And he's quick to get ready to go!

I've noticed he has found a true passion for running.
