70 Run the Streets youth and their mentors finished out Season 10 by running the Aquarium Half Marathon in Jenks on April 5th. The kids ran in single digit wind chills, snow, rain and darkness during our tenth season and an incredible 85% of them are still on track to cross the finish line of the half.
Run the Streets is provided at no cost to the youth or their families. Youth are provided everything they need to cross the finish line of the half-marathon. This season RTS purchased 80 pairs of Brooks running shoes for the kids in addition to running gear, race fees, transportation, parties and rewards.
You can help RTS change a life one mile at a time in just a few simple clicks. Through our partnership with the Bartlesville Community Foundation you can "click and pledge" a one time donation or schedule a recurring donation. A monthly donation of as little as $5.00 will put a pair of Brooks on a Season Eleven youth and give them the opportunity to become the 500th RTS youth to cross the finish line of a half-marathon!
