“Our ongoing partnership with the LA Marathon offers tremendous opportunity to further our mission while maintaining the visibility needed to raise funds to support our kids in training,” Head Coach and program Director Kevin Sarkissian recently said.
Voted most “Outstanding New Charity for 2014” by the LA Marathon, the Santa Clarita Track Club’s SOAR program continues to impress, reporting an astounding 100% marathon completion rate for all participants since the program began in 2007.
SOAR offers a six month 380 mile, marathon training experience to local youth in need ages 13-18 at no cost to participants or their families.
Students committing to the 24 week training season are covered for all event registration fees, equipment, transportation, and training supplies at a cost of approximately $1,000 per student participant. During training, coaches emphasize personal commitment, nutrition, conditioning, injury prevention and general well-being.
“The real power behind SOAR’s success is the consistency and commitment demonstrated by everyone tied to the program,” said Sarkissian. “Parents, coaches, and community supporters alike pledge to be there mile for mile with each and every student, regardless of ability or personal conflict. This commitment remains absolute from day one until our final runner crosses the finish line safely on marathon day.”
