SYTA Youth Foundation Run

The SYF run team uses long distance running/walking as a symbol of endurance and hope. The goal is simple – to raise money for youth to travel with their schools or youth organizations. Participants on the Run Team fundraise on behalf of SYF, train, and participate in a marathon or half-marathon, and run in honor of a student who has been chosen to receive a Road Scholarship.
