For our August Ladies Night out we are featuring Students Run The Streets, as our featured charity. Students Run The Streets is a free, after-school running club that works with middle and high school students in Hampton Roads. Through exercise, mentor programs and supplemental education, we are working to help every student achieve their personal best in all aspects of life.
The main mission of Students Run the Streets is to engage, mentor and influence youth, ages 11-18 through running, while equipping them with the necessary tools to reach their personal best. This group pushes four main values that focus on Positive Peer Pressure, that Everyone Matters, No To Status Quo and Doing The Right Thing.
They currently have 25 students who are eager to complete their upcoming programs. With the success of this current program they are looking to expand to more schools throughout Hampton Roads in the coming years. Since the implementation of this program students were able to excel not only in physical fitness, but educationally as well. Pushing the students to excel they are able to run many noted marathons in Hampton Roads such as the Pirate Run 5K, Christmas Town Dash, Game Day 5K/10K, One-City Marathon and Virginia Running Festival, which are free of charge.
Be sure to speak with the founders of Students Run the Streets at Bull Island Brewery featuring our event sponsor Bell Isle Beach Club and Marina in Hampton on August 28, 2017 to learn more how you can be involved with this amazing group.
