WE STAND WITH BLACK LIVES MATTER

We must show up for our Black community, our young Black runners and their families, our Black volunteers and coaches, and our Black staff and board members. All of whom are disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 crisis on top of centuries of persisting through white supremacy. We stand with Black Lives Matter and in solidarity with those who are protesting the murders of George Floyd, Breona Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tony McDade, and Modesto Reyes, and the violence faced by the Black community in this country.

ANTI-RACISM RESOURCES FOR WHITE PEOPLE

WELCOME OUR NEW EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR: STEFANNY ALECON!

We’re beyond excited to welcome Stefanny Alecon as our new Executive Director, effective Monday, June 14. Stefanny has been a part of the YRN family for the past five years as a school-based coach and park-site leader. Stefanny and our outgoing Executive Director, Denali, will overlap together through mid-July — a passing of the baton if you will — before Stefanny leads the team into the 12th season of Youth Run NOLA in the Fall!
For the past five years, Stefanny has been a teacher, instructional coach, and assistant principal at one of our partner schools, and she built and has helped lead their Youth Run NOLA team throughout her tenure.
She holds a Master’s in Special Education, is a native Spanish speaker, and loves listening to anything by Drake to help get her through long runs.
Click the link below to read our interview with her, and welcome her to our team!
