Community Impact

In addition to offering events that get the community moving – a great thing in itself -- Twin Cities In Motion also works to move for more in the following ways. 

A Community in Motion

TCM makes its home in the Twin Cities Motion Center, co-officing with other motion-related nonprofits at a welcoming, run-friendly location along the Mississippi River. The Motion Center creates a new hub for community programs and services and a gathering place for local nonprofits for group runs and indoor gatherings.

Twin Cities Motion Center

Each year, dozens of charity organizations recruit teams to raise funds while participating in the Twin Cities In Motion events. Charity team runners raise more than $1-million annually for a variety of community causes, offering additional meaning to the miles they cover. 

Charity Team Fundraising

Youth aged 18 and under run Twin Cities In Motion events free of charge. Since the TC Kids Run Free programs’ inception in 2022, more than 11,000 kids have been introduced to running and the rewards of movement through the groundbreaking program. 

TC Kids Run Free

In partnership with local specialty run stores, TCM provides running shoes to high school cross country and track and field athletes in need. Since 2010, more than 500 athletes from schools across the Twin Cities metro area have benefitted from the program. 

High School Running Shoe Program

TCM donates dozens of race entries to local nonprofits to use for fundraising and silent auctions. We’re please to assist other members of the nonprofit community with event entries.
