No matter who wins this year’s LA Marathon, the greatest success stories will be told by the participants of Students Run LA, a program that challenges at-risk youth to train for and complete the LA Marathon.
Approximately 4,000 secondary students from Los Angeles communities rare currently training to run the marathon this year. More than 99% of these dedicated and amazing students finish the grueling race. And more than 98% of the high school seniors who complete the marathon with SRLA go on to graduate from high school
This vital program has positively affected the lives of more than 30,000 kids by helping teach them to set goals, fulfill commitments and develop character. In addition, SRLA provides these at-risk youths with adult mentoring and the obvious health benefits that result from running.
We’re tremendously proud of our association with SRLA, and we shot this video to show you what they’re all about.
