Every student we connected with felt this club was like a second family for them. The mentors are teachers, parents or past students from the club. As they run together, they develop relationships with other students and with mentors in the community. The program serves over 1,200 students. Most kids don't come from a running background but so many of them have already run the Broad Street Run (10 miles) and/or the Philadelphia Marathon.
