We are devastated by the loss of these shoes.They are an essential item on our student’s journey to the Marathon. For many of our students, these are the only running shoes they will get all year. It’s upsetting to think that these materials were taken from the children in our community who need them most.
Not only were the goods stolen but so too was our sense of security. This is the first time in our 33-year history that we have experienced any kind of theft. That criminals would steal from our students could make one lose faith in community but we know that's not the case.
We are so thankful for our SRLA community: the leaders, runners, donors, and supporters who make Students Run LA possible. Without you, SRLA students could not reach their dreams on the marathon course and beyond.
