I just wanted to reach out and say thank you for the opportunity to go to Monument Elementary today. I thought the event went great! Working with the kids and seeing their faces when McPufferson came out was definitely one of the highlights. I hope to continue to work with USATF Foundation, GoNoodle, and the Run with US program in the future!- Mike Rutt
The event was a tremendous success and so much fun! I don’t think I’ve ever felt more like a celebrity in my entire life. Run with Us is such a cool program for the kids (and adults too) and its presence transforms the classroom culture. To watch it on a video is one thing, but to actually experience it with the children and see first-hand the innovation at work was truly inspiring. Thank you so much for thinking about NJ*NY and creating an opportunity for us to work with Monument Elementary!- Cydney Ross
I had a wonderful time, words can not express my gratitude. From the time I arrived from the time I left it was a great experience. The crew was extremely nice, and very welcoming. It made me feel very comfortable, and excited. Thank you so much for this experience. It was not only a great experience, but, it was a great inspiration to me especially as I get closer and closer to the Olympic Trials/Games.- Stephanie – Elite Athlete
