[su_quote]Why: The money raised through this event will go to help keep the Monroe Milers running group running.
What: The run/walk will be a one-mile loop starting and finishing at the church.
Who we are: Monroe Milers is an all-volunteer run, high quality, developmentally appropriate urban youth running program. Over 8 weeks, kids train for a 5K race. Monroe Milers offers two training sessions, one in the fall, and one in the spring. Sessions are held twice week over the 8 week training period. At the end of each session participants run in a graduation race; Pumpkins in the Park 5K in the fall and the Flower City/Wegmans Family 5K in the spring. Every child that participates in the program is fitted for a pair of high quality running shoes once per school year, receives a t-shirt, free race entry, snacks and earns running related attendance awards. The program supports 50 Rochester city youths each session.
Our Purpose: Through its involvement with neighborhood youth and their families, New Life Presbyterian Church identified and addressed a need for organized physical activity for children. Many youth involved in the church’s programs come from low-income, transient families which have neither the money nor the stability to enroll/involve their children in school based organized sports programs. To address this need, the church teamed up with Fleet Feet Rochester and the Upper Monroe Neighborhood Association to create the Monroe Milers.[/su_quote]
