Become a Friend of TCM

We believe that participating in races gives kids confidence and pride, and encourages them to develop a life-long love of being active. That is why Twin Cities In Motion gives free race entries to thousands of kids each year.

Give Now!

By donating to Twin Cities In Motion, your contributions help us reach even more kids who couldn't otherwise afford a race. For just $10 you can send a kid to the start line of one of our races, providing them bus transportation and a medal and a T-shirt when they finish.

For every race you run, consider giving $10 to give the gift of a race to a local youth. Your donation helps put children on the start line to an active, healthy lifestyle.

In addition to race entries, donations help support after-school fitness & nutrition programs as well as college scholarships and free running shoes to high school athletes.
