Inspiring greatness in Grand Rapids youth one step at a time.
Statement of Purpose
The purpose of No Surrender Running Club is two-fold. First, NSRC seeks to build meaningful and positive relationships with Grand Rapids youth where they can learn in a very real way that they are important, valuable, and significant individuals. Second, NSRC seeks to build the self-esteem, inner-strength, and belief of all participating youth that they have the ability to achieve great things.
How It’s Done
No Surrender Running Club uses running and mentorship as tools to accomplish our Mission and Statement of Purpose. The youth participate in bi-weekly training runs with adult mentors and work towards completing 2 races of substantial length (from 10k to 10 miles) each year.
