How do we set at-risk teens on the road to a better future for themselves and for our community? Prepare them to complete the LA Marathon with Students Run LA. Here's what they say...
Antonio: "(The Marathon) gave me the confidence that I needed and gave me the determination to attack other goals that I had in mind. As a result, I also managed to perform better in school because I wanted to excel in everything I do."
Joaquin: I do not think that I would have ever been accepted to a four-year university had I not participated in SRLA, because it was through this organization that I met people who talked to me about college, and finishing the marathon is the evidence that convinced me that I am capable of graduating from a four-year university.
SRLA provides 3,000 teens across LA a 26-week mentoring and physical fitness program. SRLA teaches them to set and achieve goals by preparing them to complete the LA Marathon® . While running is the core activity of the program, SRLA students learn that discipline, persistence, and hard work lead to success...both at the marathon and in life.
Join us to support these tremendous young people as they embark upon the journey of a lifetime...to the starting line (and finish line) of the LA Marathon®!
