THE STORY:

Monroe Milers is a vision and a dream of a couple of very good friends. I have been lucky enough to see their dream grow and really change the lives of quite a few children. To see these kids grow in so many different ways since they started in 2011 is amazing. Now some of them are becoming coaches to the new younger runners. One participant even has made it to the Olympic training center this school break. Their funding is donations weather it be money, snacks, apparel or food. What ever they receive is used to the fullest 100% for the kids. Every session they fill up fast always great to see them able to grow. Below is their mission statement. Mission: To provide a high quality introduction to running to youth in the Upper Monroe Avenue neighborhood. Description: To carry out its vision statement to expand outreach efforts focusing on children, youth and their families, New Life Presbyterian Church decided to hit the ground running, literally. In the spring of 2011, the church sponsored a small walk to run program for seven neighborhood children with the goal of having participants train to run a 5K race. Based on this experience, the church teamed up with the Upper Monroe Neighborhood Association and Fleet Feet Sports Rochester to expand the program. With a grant from the Greater Rochester Health Foundation, 25 neighborhood youth participated in the Monroe Milers Club this fall. “Our spring program was such a success,” says program organizer Nancy Allinger, “that we knew we had a winning idea. Of the seven youth who started the program, five ran a 5K on the fourth of July. Our youngest runner, a nine year old, completed the race in 22:49. An amazing time, period, and especially for someone who had never run before.” Monroe Milers is based at New Life, located on the corner of Monroe Avenue and Rosedale Street. Runners and their volunteer coaches met on Wednesday evenings and Sundays at noon, September through October, 2011. The program participants put their training to the test by competing in the Run for the Pumpkins 5K in Cobbs Hill Park on October 29.
