Let Me Run is proud to be an official charity partner of the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon. Our company, BlackArch Partners, has been closely involved with LMR for as long as I can remember. I’ve had the great opportunity to see, first hand, the remarkable impact that LMR has on boys. It has been a privilege to watch the organization leverage what they started in Charlotte, NC to form teams all across the country! I am incredibly thankful and very much excited to run my very first marathon in NYC, a city very special to me, to support LMR.
Participating as a 2017 TCS New York City Marathon Charity Partner is an incredible opportunity for Let Me Run. Through our ten devoted Charity Runners, we can raise awareness and much-needed funds, which will enable us to expand our reach across the country and fulfill our mission. We’re working to inspire all boys through the power of running to be courageous enough to be themselves, build healthy relationships, and live active lifestyles. All runners pay their own race fees and travel such that all the money they raise supports the charity.
Our Let Me Run Charity Runners will have the unique opportunity — and responsibility — to provide support, inspiration, and leadership for our boys, the next generation of men.
Like the New York Road Runners Club, Let Me Run believes, ”running takes your body, mind, and spirit to a better place. The simple act of putting one foot in front of the other and moving forward can make you healthier, happier, and more confident.” That’s why running is such a powerful vehicle for the holistic lessons in our curriculum.
In addition to running, generosity has also been proven to increase health and happiness. Let Me Run's Charity Runners can combine the power of running and generosity to become a force for positive change in our society, who support the emotional, social and physical health of our boys.
