Mission

To transform lives through mentoring and long distance running.

What We Do

Over the past 14 years, Students Run Philly Style has created a movement of healthy young people in Philadelphia -- a movement that has touched multiple generations of families and measurably impacted the lives of its participants. Serving 1,200 youth annually, the Students Run Philly Style mentoring model pairs youth ages 12-18 with volunteer mentors. Together, youth and volunteers train alongside one another as they prepare for a full or half marathon. After completing a major accomplishment, such as finishing a marathon, and forming a close relationship with a mentor, our students graduate high school prepared to turn challenges into opportunities for success. This model has proven itself to be the most powerful way to transform the lives of young people.
