Youth Fitness

We know that the sooner we can instill healthy lifestyles in our kids, the better health they will have later in life. A major contributor to a healthy lifestyle is getting regular exercise. We are proud to offer and financially support the following initiatives that help get kids moving.

Medtronic TC Kids Marathon

The Medtronic TC Kids Marathon has been created by Twin Cities In Motion in partnership with Medtronic, to promote exercise, wellness and healthy lifestyles for kids and their families through a variety of fitness focused events.

High School Running Shoe Program

In order to keep teens participating in healthy activities without worrying about financing their equipment needs, the High School Running Shoe Program provides running shoes to athletes in need, who are participating on high school cross-country or track teams. TCM will donate $5,000 in shoes to kids in need from the 7-county metro area. Certificates will be redeemable at Run N’ Fun (St. Paul), Marathon Sports (Minneapolis), Right FIT Running (Mounds View), TC Running (Eden Prairie and Maple Grove) and Gear Running Store (Edina) with an approximate value of $50. Certificates will be provided to High School Track and Cross Country Coaches to pass along to their athletes confidentially and will be distributed at the coach’s discretion. Applications for the High School Running Shoe Program are due February 2.
