Each celebrity was paired with a mentee from NYRR’s Run for the Future Program benefiting New York City high school girls to run or walk one mile of the 13.1-mile race.

“I loved being a part of an all-female race. There were cheers from not only the sidelines, but from runners themselves, encouraging each other along the way, and I thought that was really special. It was an inspired morning,” Sara said.
