A One Man RUn for
Detroit's Youth 
July 17th 2021
Start Time: 5:45 a.m. 

People tend to say that "Children are our future".    

Detroit's children and youth are that... and so much more.  

These 26.2 miles are aimed at supporting two things efforts: 

1) Increasing awareness of, and contributions to, members of Detroit's after school community; and

2) In partnership with the Fatima Plater Scholarship, raise funds for aspiring and current College of Education students at Wayne State University and Western Michigan University; 

While awareness builds knowledge, action leaves a legacy. 

Every stride of this 26.2 mile marathon is a small step aimed at growing Detroit's awareness of the organizations whose missions are tied to improving the outcomes for Detroit's children and youth through after-school and summer programs.  

Discover the organizations on this initial list of Team Kids Detroit. 

Donate time or dollars to support the work that speaks to you (When you do, use #teamkids313).

              All Fatima Plater Scholarship donations can be made to the             Metro Riverfront Optimist Club Zelle account using or 313-570-6046.
