Finishing a Half Marathon alongside an adolescent who just several months prior struggled to complete his first one-mile training run, was a truly extraordinary experience. With the support of Sole Train mentors and youth he was able to generate enough faith and confidence to run a race he never imagined possible. He has been, and will continue to be a profound source of inspiration in my life. I have no doubt that his newfound confidence will influence his life for years to come. What would change in our city if more youth were given opportunities to foster this degree of self-efficacy? Let’s find out, help Sole Train grow!
