Mentoring Program Goes The Distance, Focuses On Running And Relationships

Teens Run DC is an after-school program in the nation's capital that pairs economically disadvantaged teens with adult long-distance runners.

To learn more about the program, host Michel Martin speaks with Forman and Washington Post staff writer DeNeen Brown.
