About Young Life
We believe in the power of presence. When Young Life leaders share God’s love with kids, they begin to see that their lives have great worth, meaning and purpose. This is the first step of a lifelong journey; the choices they make today will have an impact on future decisions, careers, marriages and families all around Henrico County, because a caring adult took time to reach out and enter their world. Young Life in Richmond’s West End has over 30 volunteer leaders building relationships with students in six high schools in the county: Deep Run, Godwin, Freeman, Glen Allen, Hermitage and Tucker High Schools. Leaders enter into student’s lives, supporting them, loving them and demonstrating God’s love to them on a daily basis.

Why a Young Life 5k?
Each year Young Life gives thousands of dollars in scholarships to help kids experience the life changing experience of Young Life camp. Last year Young Life Richmond West End gave over $30,000 in camp scholarships to local high school students at Tucker, Hermitage, Glen Allen, Freeman, Deep Run and Godwin. It's our passion that every student would be able to enjoy the fun, adventure, and discovery that is unique to Young Life camp. Camps are located in Saranac, New York and Windy Gap, North Carolina.
