I am absolutely honored to be provided with an opportunity to support and give back to an organization that has given so much to my family!
RUN3rd is where it all started for Kody and me. We had run a few 5K's but didn't really tap into our potential until Kyle and Kody jointed the running club at their school. This opened doors for all of us. RUN3rd has been a huge part of my family for the past 3 years. Both of my sons have succeeded in not only running but pretty much anything they set their minds to. Kyle has maintained a 4.0 GPA in both 7th and 8th grade! That is a goal he has set for himself and he works hard every day to achieve it. He also got invited to join the International Baccalaureate program in high school. Kody has really found his passion in running. He ran his first half marathon at nine years old, had competed in several triathlons and is currently training for a sub 6-minute mile. I relate my kids' successes 100% to RUN3rd. Your donation will have a direct impact on young kids that enter the after-school running program, just as the program has impacted my family.
RUN3rd Alliance creates after-school running programs that champion students to discover their grit, build meaningful relationships, and inspire healthy communities. Their goal is to provide opportunities for elementary-aged students to learn valuable life-long skills that will help them grow up into productive members of society. While training for an endurance event, learning perseverance, goal setting and belief in oneself, RUN3rd also teaches students to thin of others. The students learn to take responsibility for their actions and recognize the impact they have on others, both positive and negative. The young runners learn to see outside themselves, value what others have to offer and celebrate our differences. With your help and support, together, we will empower students, families and their communities!
