Teens Run DC promotes the physical, social, and emotional well-being of underserved youth through a mentoring and distance running program. Youth in the program participate in running and life skills trainings each week, receive the support of an individual mentor and an embracing community, and engage in races, community events, and service learning opportunities. Through the program, middle and high school youth of all abilities and backgrounds envision and work towards their running and life goals.
