YAF Fundraisers

By participating in any of the five races below, you are helping further our mission of supporting youth athletics in our community by providing pathways for area kids to live active and healthy lifestyles.

The YAF gives back to the community through a series of programs including grants, scholarships, and more.

All of this money stays right here in our community to help local community members and businesses support our young athletes. Since the YAF’s inception in 1990, we’ve contributed more than $1 million within our five-county region (Carlton, Cook, Douglas, Lake, and St. Louis).
