Youth Run NOLA
Youth Run NOLA creates and empowers a community of healthy, young leaders through running. Youth Run NOLA has two program initiatives with the goal of improving public health and young peoples' network of supportive peers and adults: training at practices at partner schools with participation in local races and Saturday training at six regional parks with families.
