Learning the importance of perseverance through the Start2Finish Running & Reading Club helped Sidra accomplish her goal of earning a Master’s Degree!
“My brother and I can both recall being in the Running & Reading Club in elementary school. I remember trying to pace myself on Race Day as I competed with myself. Most of all though, I vividly remember learning the word “perseverance”. It was later in life, during my Bachelor of Science and then my master’s degree, that I realized the true importance of this characteristic. This word stayed in my head and reminded me of why I believe in the Start2Finish mission. I’m delighted to return to the program as a volunteer and help other kids develop the abilities and qualities that will help them later on in life, the same way that my coaches did when I was in the R&R Club.”
