Project Description

Running Club

Young people in this running program train for a variety of races throughout the year but it isn’t just a running program, while it focuses on the physical and emotional benefits of running, it is also a space to grow in character and self-confidence. Together, they set goals and hold one another accountable to face challenges and achieve success.
