On April 9, 2007 Governor Deval L. Patrick launched the Run For Good foundation with "Run For Good Day" in the Commonwealth of Massachussets. "We know we can't solve the epidemic that impacts children, both here in the Commonwealth and across the nation, on our own. The Saucony Run For Good Foundation hopes that our grants will make a difference for these programs and the children that they serve, and will help reverse the alarming trend of childhood obesity," said Richie Woodworth, president of Saucony and the Board of Directors for the foundation.

The American Heart Association found that 70% of children and teens will become overweight adults. If you have a community or non-profit organization dedicated to helping kids learn about healthy eating and fun fitness programs, please contact Run For Good.

Add a splash of red to your shoes and help America's kids get out, get active and get healthy by purchasing a pair of these heart-healthy laces.
