Race for DC Kids 2023
sponsored by DRT Strategies

Thank you for attending on September 16th for our Eleventh Annual Race for DC Kids sponsored by DRT Strategies. Click below to see race results from the Race and our morning feature on WJLA-7.

Our students most value being a part of YLF because of the friendship they share with their mentor. Students have greater self-confidence, set and achieve more goals and develop positive habits related to character as a result of their time with mentors.


The life-changing work we do is possible because of staff and volunteers that are living out the values they impart to students: to build character and live a life of excellence.
