NETS ON THE RUN, INC.
Nets On The Run, Inc., or “Nets,” is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 public charity committed to encouraging healthy lifestyles and improving public parks. The name is derived from a love of basketball and a prior addiction to long distance running. Nets provides support to numerous public facilities and performs volunteer work for larger athletic events such as the San Antonio Rock and Roll Marathon, semi-annual Siclovía fitness celebrations, and the annual San Antonio L’Etape Tour de France bike race. We maintain a close relationship with San Antonio Sports and maintenance of its 39 designated school parks are a front line priority. Nets enthusiastically offers community service and résumé-building opportunities for both adults and juveniles. We have over 150 members with a regular volunteer contingent of 12 – 25 people who work at each event.
Nets On The Run has no salaried employees and functions solely on a volunteer basis. Every donated dollar is used exclusively to support the defined mission and each expenditure is collectively approved by the Board of Directors. As a 501(c)3, all donations are tax-deductible. Nets is not an organization that employs the simple cliché of “raising awareness” – it is a body of committed volunteers who make a difference in the community, and who collectively want to serve as a “tipping point” by encouraging others to be active in meaningful public service. Nets On The Run welcomes all donations regardless of amount, but more importantly, the group welcomes your time, volunteer spirit, and service to the community!
