Run Free Texas is a nonprofit organization that offers a running/walking program to adolescents. It is focused on at-risk youth who are faced with deteriorating family structure, gang activity, criminal activity, violence in schools, peer pressure, bullying, substance abuse issues and other social challenges.
In 2010, the recidivism rate across the State of Texas was at 52% underlining the fact that current programs are not working for the population. The mission of Run Free Texas is to utilize physical activity as a catalyst to encourage, restore, and unify the participating youth in a supportive yet challenging physical environment. Cognitive principles that teach life skills, healthy behavior and help participants recognize their potential are being utilized in order to lower the overall recidivism rate within the juvenile justice system.
