Whether team-based or individual, sports develop both the body and spirit while instilling a sense of responsibility, accountability and leadership in children and adults of all ages. Participation in sports can have a huge positive impact on a child, including improved academic achievement, higher self-esteem, and fewer behavioral problems.

Join us at one of our events throughout the year and help ACT raise awareness and promote healthy living for children through sports!

ACT for the Kids 5k 10k and Sports Expo

The 2017 ACT for the Kids 5K/10K took place at the historic Lackawanna Heritage Trail on Saturday September 9th. This year was the first year we added a 10k to our race! It was a great event full of family fun activities and community support from local businesses and vendors.   Proceeds from the event will help local children in the community get involved in sports!  During the event we presented a check to the North Scranton Vikings to help with the cost of their uniforms.
