Give to KidsKids of STEEL and Project R.U.N.

Give Kids Confidence Through Running

You already know P3R for our world-class races like the DICK'S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon, EQT 10 Miler and Toyota Pittsburgh Kids Marathon. But we’re much more than that.

Since 2010, P3R has motivated more than 18,000 children to pursue quality nutrition and an active lifestyle through the Kids of STEEL Program. Our certified nutrition professionals, coaches, and dedicated volunteers teach children lifelong, healthy habits. 

And it’s getting noticed – Kids of STEEL is so effective that it was named the youth Program of the Year at the 2016 Running USA Conference!

Expanding Our Reach

That’s why we have set a fundraising goal of $13,000 to expand programming in urban and rural areas where children are at greater risk for health issues, including obesity.

Your donation helps, making running and eating the cool thing to do, and it changes the way these kids live and how they feel about themselves.

Even if you can’t make it to a race to cheer them on, you can get kids to the start line of healthy habits by making a gift to P3R’s youth programs today.
