In Celebration of National Running Day on June 6, 2018, click here to see a study done 4 years ago on the benefits of running.   Not just for you, but the world.

Among the findings:

  • $130 billion in health care savings
  • $47 billion added to the national GDP
  • Nearly 2 billion pounds of total weight loss
  • 10 percent increase in household earning potential
  • 5 million fewer hospital visits
  • Up to 46 percent fewer homeless
  • 20 million more great grandmothers
  • 7 billion more hours spent outside
  • 63 million happier dogs

The best part of running is that it doesn't require special equipment and can be done anywhere, with anyone.  Plus it results in 46% fewer homeless.  The Skid Row Running Club is proof that the power of running can have on getting the homeless back on their feet.
