BENEFITING: YOUTH IN ACTION INC
EVENT DATE: Sep 25, 2015
Youth In Action is on the run!
Youth in Action has been supporting youth leadership in Providence since 1997. Our young people have designed student led schools, created digital campaigns, taught their peers about health, and impacted their communities through service learning projects.
In September, 12 determined individuals--staff, youth, and some brave friends of Youth In Action--will be participating in a 24 hour relay race through the Adirondacks. Individual runners will raise money to support YIA, and the team will cover 200 miles: a mile for every youth we mentor and coach each year to tell their story, practice leadership and create change.
In short, our Ragnar team is challenging themselves much like youth do at Youth In Action every day--by conquering fear, working as a team, achieving a goal and enjoying a life-changing adventure. Our goal is to raise $10,000 to support YIA's comprehensive health initiative. Through our health program, youth obtain foundational knowledge of nutritional/physical health, reproductive/sexual health, and mental/emotional health. Be part of our team!
