SRLA at Honda LA Marathon (March 2011)
SRLA at Honda LA Marathon (March 2011)

SRLA brought 2,780 runners to the starting line of the Honda LA Marathon on March 20, 2011, and, despite torrential rain, wind and cold, 97% of them completed the full 26.2-mile course. While the sore muscles and cold, tired bodies are faint memories now, their pride in being marathoners remains. Once again, more than 90% of our seniors graduated from high school this month, and nearly all of them had plans to continue on to college last fall. Since 1989, SRLA has served more than 45,000 students in the Los Angeles area. These teens have learned to incorporate regular exercise, healthy eating and better living habits into their lives.  As one student told us, "(After participating in SRLA) I will never let anyone tell me something is impossible; that word has no meaning to me."
