This past fall a number of our Young Runners participated in the new NYRR Youth Running Series at cross country events through Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx. Driven by the brisk October air and the competition of their fellow students, these Young Runners were wholeheartedly inspired to give it their all. Some of the students from PS 011 in Queens were inspired to write poems about their experiences. You can read their poems by clicking here. Thank you Team for Kids runners for your fundraising efforts which support our Young Runners programs!
