Through a formal partnership with Grand Rapids Public Schools, the Student Achievement Foundation implemented the GR8 Sports, Great Kids program to ensure access to K-8 sports to all students regardless of ability to pay. Most school districts don’t provide elementary programs at all and require that students “pay to play” at any level.  For GRPS, this is simply not a realistic option.  By leveraging both district and private dollars, we can offer an accessible and sustainable K-8 athletics program to all students.

The Bridge Run is proud to support the cross country and track programs of Grand Rapids Public Schools.
