The mission of Students Run the Streets is to engage, mentor and influence youth ages 11-18 through distance running, while equipping them with the necessary tools to reach their personal best in all aspects of life.

Students Run the Streets works with students at Huntington Middle School and Heritage High School in Newport News. Their program relies 100% on donor support, to ensure our program remains free of charge for all our students. In their first year Students Run the Streets coaches 26 youth, and has provided them with:

  • 2 pairs of running shoes
  • Head to toe running outfit
  • 5 race entries
  • Training plan designed by USATF Certified Coach
  • Water Bottle
  • Supplemental Education Opportunities
