Students Run Philly Style (SRPS) is a 501(c)3 with a mission to transform lives through mentorship and long-distance running. Since 2004, Students Run Philly Style has supported youth in 6th - 12th grade as they train with mentors to meet an often unimaginable challenge: running a long-distance race.  

MileUp is a SRPS program in partnership with the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office (PDAO). The first Youth Diversion program of its kind, MileUp gives young people facing delinquency charges a chance to remain outside of the traditional court system, and holds youth accountable while giving them a chance to build a healthy future. The goals of MileUp are to:

  • Help youth build skills to overcome adversity and manage stress through exercise on the way to positive achievement across all aspects of their lives
  • Provide a strengths-based option to increase positive outcomes in youth diverted away from juvenile system involvement
  • Build in restitution support to reduce potential debt and continued system involvement 
  • Provide youth with long-term sustainable support
  • Increase family/guardian engagement for youth enrolled in the program to address the protective role of families in supporting youth in the juvenile justice system.

MileUp is designed to run in 2 cohorts (Spring and Fall) per year, with the goal to complete either the Broad Street Run or the Philadelphia Half Marathon with support from youth advocates, volunteer mentors, peer mentors, and mentors/drivers. Students have the opportunity to earn shoes, team shirts, and other gear as they reach milestones throughout the season, and those who successfully complete the season may have their restitution fees paid, charges dropped, and records expunged.
