Every day, these smart, passionate people work hard to help Let Me Run reach and inspire as many boys as possible.

Why Let Me Run?

I only have one child, a daughter. So empowering women and girls was always an important issue for me. After my husband, her father, died by suicide in 2014, I realized that if we don’t do something to also help boys, our girls are not getting the fathers, partners, and friends they deserve. I am also a runner and I know all the positive effects running has had on my own mental health.
