YAF Programs

Since its inception in 1990, the Young Athletes Foundation (YAF) has contributed more than $1,000,000 to the community through a series of kids’ events, grants, scholarships, and other programs.

All of this money stays right here in our community to help local community members and businesses support our young athletes.

The YAF provides support for youth and recreational athletic organizations, as well as individual young athletes within our five-county region (Carlton, Cook, Douglas, Lake, and St. Louis).

If you would like to get involved or have other questions, please contact our Program Director Alivia Nelson via email at alivia@grandmasmarathon.com or call our office at (218) 727-0947.
