The Step Ahead 5K Run/Walk is the onsite culmination of a nationwide social campaign of #StudentLeadershipDay. This day serves to recognize and celebrate the young leaders that benefit from the Student Leadership Network and its overall mission to provide access to educational opportunities that prepare them to lead successful lives. The event will raise awareness and funding for Student Leadership Network and its CollegeBound Initiative, a program that highlights the work of College Counseling Directors who together develop a tight-knit partnership with school administrators and parents to ensure that students succeed.
“I am excited to partner with the Student Leadership Network in their Step Ahead 5k walk not only because I am passionate about fitness & having an overall healthy lifestyle but also because I am passionate about giving back to the youth, especially those in underservedor at-risk communities, inspiring them to tap into who they really are and embracing their individual unique potential,” says Angela Simmons.
