How Can You Help the YAF?
The YAF and Grandma's Marathon are committed to reaching out to even more children. Many people have asked how they can help the YAF work toward this goal. Here are some suggestions:
Hosting the Fitger’s 5K, Park Point 5-Miler, Wednesday Night at the Races and YAF Live and Silent Auction would not be possible with out participation from our community members. By running in the YAF races or attending and bidding on items at the auction, you’re guaranteed to have a little fun while supporting the YAF along the way.
We’re always in need of volunteers for our YAF events including the Fitger’s 5K, the Park Point 5-Miler and Wednesday Night at the Races. We couldn’t host these events without volunteer support, so if you’re willing to donate your time, please give us a call today at (218) 727-0947.
Become a Sponsor!
The YAF has one of the most affordable sponsorship programs around. Sponsors receive many promotional benefits that include, but are not limited to: logo on all Fitger’s 5K and Park Point 5-Miler entry forms, feature story in the YAF newsletter, logo and link on the YAF web site, verbal announcements at all YAF events, and much more. For more information on becoming a valued YAF sponsor, call Scott Keenan at (218) 727-0947.
Make a Donation!
Whether you contribute $5 or $500 your contribution will play an important role in helping the YAF provide children with the resources and opportunities they need to lead healthy lifestyles and to participate in athletic activities. You can send your donation to Grandma's Marathon headquarters at P.O. Box 16234, Duluth, MN 55816 with a note designating it to the Young Athletes Foundation.
We appreciate every person and business that has helped the YAF thrive. We hope you’ll continue to join our efforts in assisting with the promotion, development and growth of youth athletics by becoming involved with the YAF in one of the ways we suggest above.
After all—it’s about the kids!
