Spotlight: Running and Fitness Program
Since April 2011, H.E.A.L.T.H for Youths has been holding weekly runs led by Zachary Barnwell, volunteer at the New York Road Runners Foundation. These runs around Central Park and other locations in Queens and the Bronx give adolescents the opportunity to exercise and teaches them to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Participants learn how to properly stretch and get important running tips from our resident expert.
Additionally, we host fitness workshops, where adolescents learn about nutrition and overall physical wellness.
Young people from our partner program, Staten Island Youth Justice Center's Project READY (Richmond Engagement Activities for Determined Youth), have taken advantage of our running and fitness program.
