On the behalf of the Sole Train Running Club, we would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for all the donations, support and encouragement – to our mentors and most importantly our youth. We also want to congratulate our fellow mentors and youth for completing the B.A.A. Half Marathon – 13.1 Miles – WOW! This will prove to be a major milestone in their lives and have a significant impact on their personal endeavors – short-term as well as long-term!
This program has been very rewarding – mentally, physically and spiritually for our family and all the participants involved. To see the transformation of our youth has been very motivating as well as inspiring. We are blessed and fortunate not only to have our son, Quinton, Jr., in this program, but we are also blessed to be mentors. To be able to help the youth strive for excellence as they pursue their personal dreams, goals and aspirations – academically, socially and athletically is priceless!
We are so thankful for the TEEP Program and Jess Leffler (Director of Sole Train), for leading the youth mentorship running club! There are so many youth starving for attention, positive role models, and community/afterschool programs that foster excellence in all areas of their lives!
In closing, although we have nothing against celebrities that live their lives in a way that’s worthy of being mimicked, however, it’s imperative for us – adults, parents and professionals that have direct access to our young people, to be that local “CELEBRITY” and be that local “HERO” in their day-to-day lives!
Our children are WORTHY of the best that life can offer! They are WORTHY of YOU! So let’s get involved!
With honor and admiration,
Quinton & Takesha Hurd, Sr., Parents of Quinton Hurd, Jr. & Sole Train Mentors
