Trinity First School, located in the Phillips neighborhood of Minneapolis, received funds in 2020 to provide running store gift cards to cross country team members.

RUN MINNESOTA is a 501c3 nonprofit with a mission to serve the running community and support runners of all ages and abilities through education, programs, and advocacy.

 Specifically by developing educational resources and training programs that support and empower runners, facilitating opportunities to participate in races and running events in Minnesota, and fostering a welcoming, inclusive running community for all Minnesotans.

• offering free entry to our races and training programs for those experiencing financial barriers and those who have historically been excluded from the sport, including but not limited to Black, Indigenous & People of Color (BIPOC), LGBTQIA+ people and disabled people
