Kiara began participating in the RunStrong Program as a 6th grader at Mendez Fundamental school after hearing about the program from her older brother. Kiara was a focused, disciplined runner during her three years with Runstrong and now runs 5k races on a regular basis. In fact, the program introduced her to the joys of running and to the benefits of seeing her hard work and training pay off in faster times race after race.
The nonprofit Kevin L. Armstrong M.D. Memorial Sports Foundation creates opportunities for at-risk students to reach their full potential academically and athletically. Our RunStrong programs help kids succeed in life. Get involved!
