Since 2018, Community Youth Advance has hosted an annual “A Mother’s Love 5K Run” that has brought families out from all across the Greater DC region for a fun and engaging 5K to promote health, wellness and community. Community Youth Advance is dedicated to advancing the academic, social, and career opportunities of boys and girls by providing them and their families, with academic enrichment, mentorship, college prep assistance and access to career training. Community Youth Advance provides comprehensive educational and character-based programming for students in grades K-12. More than 200 participants gathered on Saturday, May 14 from all over the Greater DC region for the 5k run. After the run there was music, games, entertainment and a photo booth for participants to enjoy. Patient First, a proud supporter of Community Youth Advance and their mission to help youth in the community, was excited to be a part of such a great cause.
