  • Encourage and support healthy activities for people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities
  • Provide a vital platform for local charities to raise more than $1-million annually for community causes
  • Invest in our community through partners like Girls on the Run and the YWCA of Minneapolis
  • Develop healthy, active habits in future generations via TCM’s youth events and high school free running shoe program
