About

Prospect Park Youth Running Club is an inclusive track and field program nurturing athletes of all abilities, ages 6 - 13, as they strive to meet personal fitness goals, navigate the joys and hurdles of competition, and experience the rewards of being a part of a dynamic team. PPYRC currently boasts a roster of 150 youth athletes, encouraged and challenged by 6 devoted volunteer coaches.

What I'm Raising Money For

1. General funds to keep membership fees low, and to provide membership scholarships. 2. Provide funding for travel, allowing athletes to compete in national meets who might not be able to otherwise. 3. Purchase equipment. While minimal, it's critical that our young athletes train with competitive equipment.

Why You Should Give

If you've ever seen PPYRC in action, you know our young athletes bring focus, grit, and passion to their running. The coaching staff demonstrates an unwavering commitment to support each and every child in reaching her or his full potential. The coaches donate 100% of their time in order to help keep registration fees low and the team accessible to all! Your tax-deductible donation will further the mission of the team: supporting youth athletes' participation in the cross country, indoor track, and outdoor track seasons as well as increasing PPYRC's representation at regional and national meets.

We believe in the great things that PPYRC stands for… Creating meaningful connections and a common bond that brings together our community like nothing else does... Providing personal development, the understanding of commitment and dedication, the importance of wellness, and the awareness of striving to meet goals... And most of all, offering a group of friends, a family and a constellation of positive memories that will be with the runners forever. This team has given Sebastian a sense of belonging and purpose that provides him a strong foundation for everything else he does. Thank you.
