KEEN is a national, nonprofit volunteer-led organization that provides one-to-one recreational opportunities for children and young adults with developmental and physical disabilities at no cost to their families and caregivers. KEEN's mission is to foster the self-esteem, confidence, skills and talents of its athletes through non-competitive activities, allowing young people facing even the most significant challenges to meet their individual goals.
KEEN San Francisco partnered with Ragnar Relay as the 2013 beneficiary for the SF to Napa race. It was 2 Days of runners covering 200ish miles in pouring down rain and long hours. We are super PROUD of our team KEENsf - preliminary results have them placing in the top 3, stay tuned for the final stats!
