UP AND RUNNING AGAIN wrote -
Up and Running Again is an agent for changing lives. We seek to bring hope to the hopeless and strength to the weak through the relationships, achievements, and discipline of a group running program.
We currently have around 100 runners in training to run the Long Beach Half-Marathon (13.1 miles) October 13, 2013. The runners are at-risk youth and rescue mission recovery program participants. Up and Running Again provides the runners with coaching and training for 14 weeks. Also, we provide new running shoes and pay for the race registration fee for those who put in the required training participation. The cost for one runner is about $200.
I am coaching seven men from the Long Beach Rescue Mission. These runners have near perfect attendance and are putting in consistently good effort in the training runs. We run four days a week at 6:00 a.m. These guys are dedicated!
Please consider what part you might want to take in helping some good guys get back on a good path.
