The making of the Monroe Milers
Video Description: 

Nancy Allinger, a runner and high school educator, noticed a trend developing in 2010: young parishioners with lots of energy running around the church and grounds following services. With the support of her church, New Life Presbyterian on Rosedale Street, and Fleet Feet Sports, she founded the Monroe Milers -- a volunteer led running program for boys and girls in the upper Monroe Avenue Neighborhood. When the kids start to care about being better runners, they begin to improve themselves in other ways. In addition to training runs and lessons on endurance, the Monroe Milers teach community building and perform community service.
