Sole Train: Boston Runs Together is a community building and mentoring program that deconstructs impossible by using running as a vehicle for setting and achieving previously unimaginable goals. As a supportive community of caring adults and peers, Sole Train champions young people as they realize their capacity for greatness.

Practices will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:30-3:30pm. The practices will culminate in a 5 mile run in Boston's Run to Remember.

No running experience required and volunteering on one or both days is ok!

"Sole Train is about believing in yourself and never giving up. I learned that running isn't about winning; it's about trying your best and always following your dreams."

- Julie T., youth participant
