Young Quakers, an after-school initiative operated by the Netter Center for Community Partnerships and Penn Athletics, partnered with USA Track & Field to present the RunJumpThrow event, which taught students from Comegys, Lea, and Hamilton elementary schools the fundamentals of running, jumping, and throwing, alongside athletes from Penn’s track & field teams; USA Track & Field and Penn Relay alums Mark Everett and Erin Donohue; and Independence Blue Cross’ Blue Crew.
