Kids Run Free Ltd
Kids run Free is a thriving, grass roots charity that is passionate about helping children to lead healthier, happier and more active lives through running based programs: Kids Run Free (parks) and Marathon Kids (schools).
Kids Run Free now has a presence in over 34 parks and 70 schools across the UK (with many of these in London) and huge demand from parents and teachers means that this number is set to rise significantly over the next few years.
Kids Run Free is the brain child of triathlete and mum of two: Martine Verweij whose vision is that every child should be able to realise their potential through running.
The Kids Run Free mission is to create fun, sustainable running opportunities for 0-16 year olds; igniting their passion for sport and physical activity and allowing them to become healthier, happier, more confident children.
Kids Run Free Ltd aims to:
- Provide regular opportunities for children of all backgrounds and fitness levels to take part in running at grass roots level and to encourage long term participation.
- Create a fully supported, sustainable infrastructure of volunteers across the country delivering Kids Run Free initiatives.
- Encourage the use of parks and green spaces for the benefit of local young people.
- Closely monitor the impact of Kids Run Free initiatives and ensure that each child involved receives a positive experience.
