Fleet Feet Sacramento and Project Fit have some very exciting news. We have partnered our Project Fit program with Runnin’ for Rhett. Our two organizations were duplicating efforts around youth fitness with two programs that were almost identical in structure.

Runnin’ for Rhett’s sole mission is youth fitness and we know this partnership will ultimately help improve the health of more children in the greater Sacramento area.
To the right you will find the benefits and details of Runnin’ for Rhett. The only thing you need to do to get Runnin’ for Rhett at your school is apply by Friday, September 9, 2016. They are a great organization, we endorse them completely and hope you will continue youth fitness at your school by applying this week.

R4R Youth Fitness Program is designed to combat childhood obesity in at-risk youth by educating young people and their families on fitness and nutrition. The Runnin’ for Rhett Foundation makes training available at no charge to schools in the 4-county Sacramento area.
Rhett’s parents, Randy and Beth Seevers, meet with school officials, coaches, participants and their families to share Rhett’s story, offering motivation and encouragement to ensure a meaningful experience for all. During the 5-week training program, the students meet two times per week with coaches to learn about proper running technique, stretches, and nutrition. In addition to training, each participant receives race entrance to the Sunday, November 6, 2016 Run Because You Can, a Runnin’ for Rhett t-shirt and wristband, and a finishing medal.
