What: Let Me Run is a nonprofit wellness program that inspires boys to be themselves, be active, and belong. Two trained volunteer coaches lead a team of 4th and 5th grade boys through practice. Designed to amplify confidence, self-expression, and respect for others, each practice includes a lesson from the Let Me Run curriculum that incorporates running, games and activities. Our training will culminate in a 5k race in late November that celebrates the boys’ personal growth. Please visit to learn more about the program.
