The official charity partner of Philly Run Fest, Students Run Philly Style is a unique mentorship program that uses a simple approach to fostering resilience in Philadelphia youth: a pair of sneakers and a caring adult. Students are challenged with a seemingly insurmountable goal of running a marathon, and supported with a community of caring adults to share the journey. The result is a young person who knows through experience that anything in life is possible. Each year, Students Run Philly Style serves over 1,200 Philadelphia youth.

A portion of the profits will be donated to Students Run Philly Style. Please consider an additional donation upon registering for the race. To learn more about Students Run Philly Style and getting involved, please visit:
