Youth Run NOLA


Raised of $20,000


Founded in 2010 as an after-school club in St. Bernard Parish, Youth Run NOLA uses distance running to help local youth commit to healthy living, set and achieve goals, and build a network of supportive peers and adults. Since its founding, the organization has served more than 1,000 youth at 35 public school sites and 6 neighborhood parks, run more than 35,000 miles, and logged more than 40,000 volunteer hours. We create and empower a community of healthy, young leaders through running, with an intensive eight-month guided training program of weekly practices and monthly events guided by teacher-coaches and community member volunteers. Our program offers youth a positive, structured environment to build healthy habits, set and achieve goals, and develop supportive relationships.
