Students Run LA Takes 40,000 Students Across the Marathon Finish Line Over Past 21 Years
Date:3/18/2010

LOS ANGELES, March 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In its 21-year history, under the guidance of more than 450 volunteer teachers and adult leaders, SRLA has trained more than 40,000 teenagers from 170 schools in the greater Los Angeles area to complete the 26.2 mile Los Angeles Marathon. On March 21, 2,800 SRLA students and volunteer leaders will again participate in the LA Marathon. While running is the core activity of the program, SRLA's mission is to challenge at-risk secondary students to experience the benefits of goal setting, character development, discipline, and improved health while keeping them involved with school.

"Our program provides students all of the resources and equipment needed to successfully complete the marathon, from running shoes to race entries, but their success comes from the mentoring they receive from their teacher leaders who train mile for mile with them, and instill in them the desire and will to seek a better future for themselves," said SRLA Executive Director Michelle Hahn. "The positive impact of the program is evident in that more than 97 percent of SRLA students complete the full 26.2 mile course and 95 percent of the high school seniors graduate and plan to attend college."

The six-month SRLA season begins in September and sends runners through one 5K event, a 10K, a 15K, a half marathon, and the 18 mile Friendship Run, all leading up to
