This event will be a great afternoon of fun! It benefits Let Me Run, a non profit prevention program aimed at strengthening boys in body and spirit. Our Mission is to inspire boys to stay on track to living into their full potential by inspiring healthy friend, family and community relationships. We use the power of running and lively group activities to equip boys with tools to lead a balanced and fulfilling life - emotionally, physically, mentally, socially and spiritually. Our boys feel the strength of being connected to others through positive communication and team interaction. Upon leaving the program we watch for our boys to take responsibility for all aspects of their health and confidently lead for positive change around them. Diversity of gifts and abilities are welcomed and expected. We celebrate the courage to try and the perseverance to improve!
