LMCU Bridge Run

Sun September 17, 2023 Directions

No Surrender Running Club (NSRC) is a program that believes that all youth have the potential within themselves to be successful and do great things in life.  Some youth, especially urban youth, face many obstacles that can make success seem almost unattainable.  NSRC works directly with inner-city organizations well established within a community.

NSRC serves youth that live in the Garfield Park neighborhood.  We focus on the Garfield Park area because youth from this neighborhood face many struggles and difficulties in their everyday lives.  For example, youth lose family members to deportation or gang violence.  Random acts of violence happen often.  Virtually 100% of youth participating in NSRC from this neighborhood come from families that are at or below the poverty line, and the majority are from female-headed households.  In addition, this area has one of the highest crime rates in Grand Rapids.  This neighborhood has very limited resources/ministries for youth outside of school.

Volunteers from local churches, running groups, and businesses train with youth to complete races that will take commitment, dedication, and hard work to be able to complete.
