Mission Statement: The Topeka Sunflower Striders Running Club is a non-profit organization committed to the overall health and well-being of all who engage in physical activity. The Striders encourage running, walking, or any other form of physical activity with the focus being the mental, physical and social well-being of its members. We offer weekly get-togethers where runners or walkers can offer or receive motivation to or from others to continue in their pursuit of physical and mental fitness. We sponsor several events throughout the year to achieve the same goal and to benefit many worthwhile charities and organizations. Our common bond is the joy of movement and of being outdoors.
