The Mile High Squash group consists of about fifty underserved Hispanic students in Denver.  In addition to squash lessons and healthy lifestyle direction, the MHS organization also provides academic tutoring for 6th – 12th grade students.  Newton Running designer has been involved with the MHS program since they started the program in 2008 from an academic perspective, but since he came to Newton Running, his contribution will be physical fitness and squash.

Here he am with 20-students from the Mile High Squash organization working on their running form as they prepare for their first annual “MHS Running to College 5k” on October 22 in Denver, CO.  The session included a brief warm-up session consisting of form drills followed by running and walking for 20-minutes, and then some barefoot cool down stretches and balancing drills on the squash court.
