Let Me Run is a nationally recognized, seven week, after-school program whose mission is to inspire boys through the power of running, to be courageous enough to be themselves, to build healthy relationships and to live an active lifestyle.
A group of 8-14 boys in grades 4-5 meet with two volunteer mentors/coaches twice a week to be part of a program based on encouragement, personal goal setting and building strong friendships. Upon completion of the season, boys leave the program with a sense of accomplishment (as they are training for a 5K run to finish the season), a deeper sense of self, and a greater appreciation for their peers. Each session is an hour and 15 minutes and starts with a unity running lap, followed by stretches, running and activities centering around a daily lesson.
