The program, called GO Run For Fun, is a 1-mile fun run, delivered to elementary schools for free, during the school day, so that all kids can join in.
GO Run For Fun is designed to help kindergarten through fifth-grade kids see how much fun exercising can be, and to help them develop an interest in exercising outside of PE class. Recognizing that a similar health problem exists in Texas, the INEOS ICAN Foundation was created to deliver the GO Run For Fun program to kids living in communities on the Houston Gulf Coast.
While talking to teachers, we realized that there’s also a need to fund projects that help kids learn in new and different ways. And because we want local kids to be both healthy and educated, the INEOS ICAN Foundation began to support teacher grants through the education foundations of local ISDs.
