WHO WE ARE
Running Tracks for Kids, Inc. started out as a discussion between myself and my two daughters in the summer of 2022. I asked them if they would've had a better time on their high school track & field team if they had a track to use in middle school. Not surprisingly, they said they would have.
I was a little irritated because as a middle school student fifty years ago, I was able to run on a decomposed granite track in a lower middle class suburb of St. Paul, MN. Why couldn't my kids have had the same opportunity in the 21st century?
