We asked our ambassador, Stephanie Quiney, to tell us about her experience as a coach for her school’s Operation Smile Shamrock Final Mile. She may be gushing about her student runners, but everything she says is about every runner. No matter the age, running has a way of connecting us all!
There is something we all have in common: we all love running! But we all found our love of running in different ways. When did you fall in love with running?
People often ask Jerry and I how the Starting Strides program began. The idea came to me the same place where most of my ideas come from: on a running. For those of you who don’t know, Starting Strides is a program through that J&A Racing Foundation that makes running accessible to students who have barriers that prevent them from participating in the Operation Smile Shamrock Final Mile.
