Art for Runners: Supporting Youth Villages

  • A2H 3009 Davies Plantation Rd Lakeland, TN, 38002

Art for Runners provides the unique opportunity for local artists to showcase and sell their artwork to the community.

Painters, photographers, sculptors and artists of all kinds are invited to participate in this one-night only art show benefiting the Youth Villages Runners Club.

In 1998, volunteers formed the Youth Villages Runners Club to teach youth the importance of achieving personal and physical goals. Runners work with the kids to help them train for community races. The youth also can earn special prizes for reaching milestones. More than 250 kids currently participate in Youth Villages Runners Club. In 2012, the club members ran more than 11,500 miles and participated in 11 5Ks.
