Kevin Armstrong MD Memorial Sports Foundation Launches GO F.A.R. (Fun, Active Running) for Santa Ana Students
SANTA ANA, CA – In an effort to combat the effects of social isolation & mitigate the long term impact to youth physical & mental health, the Kevin Armstrong M.D. Memorial Sports Foundation has launched a new program - GO F.A.R. (Fun, Active Running), a socially distanced program designed to inspire students to recommit to physical activity. GO F.A.R. encourages students to join a running app which tracks their progress & records their distance. The Foundation will give prizes to the students who go the farthest as well as provide a “goodie” bag for all participants including a T-Shirt, mask, healthy snacks & other items designed to inspire healthy activity & good mental health.
The nonprofit Kevin L. Armstrong M.D. Memorial Sports Foundation creates opportunities for at-risk students to reach their full potential academically and athletically. Our RunStrong programs help kids succeed in life. Get involved!
"Thank you for helping me to follow my dreams of running with the Foundation. The Foundation is helping new athletes emerge and maybe you will not only see them run in races, but in the Olympics". - Kenia DelaCruz, Carr Intermediate School
