The RunMichigan Foundation’s goal is to promote the sport of running and running programs in Michigan and to preserve Michigan’s rich history of running. The Foundation will promote and preserve all levels of the sport of running in Michigan including youth, high school, college, professional and casual participants. The Foundation will help to fund existing non profit organizations that seek to use running as a way to help Michigan’s residents achieve a greater level of physical fitness and mental health. The Foundation’s efforts will also help fund and facilitate those who look to preserve the history of running in Michigan through their writings, photography, media coverage or speaking engagements. Digital methods will be used to preserve any historical data that can be gathered.
