JA 4.01K Fitness Race
 
Why run for JA?
Junior Achievement empowers young people to own their economic success. Basically, we change their attitudes from "I can't" into "I CAN" through hands-on learning taught by volunteer mentors. JA Programs are age specific and instill in children early on how much power they have in their own futures. 
 
It seems to us, there is a natural relationship between being physically fit and financially fit. We want to bring attention to the fact that too many kids are growing up without basic financial literacy. They don't know how to balance a checkbook, create a budget, or understand the principles of saving and investing. We realize that if we don't do something to solve this problem, they -and our communities- will suffer. 
 
So, we've decided to have a race!
 
In 2018 alone, Junior Achievement is hosting the 4.01K Race for Financial Fitness in 8 cities around the country - Philadelphia, San Diego, Minneapolis, Orlando, Kansas City, Nashville, Chicago, Detroit.
 
If you believe, like we do, that the key to our future is ensuring that the next generation has basic financial literacy skills, then please donate to the Junior Achievement of Southeastern Pennsylvania 4.01K Race for Financial Fitness.
