Karno Kids

Karno Kids charityKarno Kids holds a special place in my heart.  It was the first charity that I supported with an ultramarathon and inspired me through my first 100-miler.

Dean Karnazes has completed many amazing feats (feets?), and despite being known for being known as ‘that crazy running guy’ or author, he also heads this charity with the title Chief Kid.

As a foundation, KARNO KIDS provides direct financial support to organizations and programs that are focused on improving the health and wellness of our youth and restoring and preserving the environment and urban open-spaces. We work with a select number of quality organizations and programs that support this vision in an accountable and quantifiable manner. Some of these include: Girls on the Run, The Conservation Fund, and Kids on Trails.
