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 and mitigate the long term impact to youth physical and 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 and 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 and 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!
