Let Me Run is a nonprofit character-development program for boys powered by running. They offer a Fall and Spring season, with programs that meet twice a week and culminate in a 5k. Let Me Run is the result of one mom, founder Ashley Armistead, realizing she needed to challenge the concept of the Boy Code with this mission: 

"We hope to reduce the challenges associated with a lack of emotional expression in pre-teen and teenage boys, which can lead to stress, sickness, disease, addiction, and violence."

The program is open to all boys in the fourth through eighth grades, regardless of running experience. Teams are comprised of six to fourteen boys and two coaches. They practice twice a week for an hour and fifteen minutes, and each practice follows a specific curriculum. While practice is of course mostly running, it is full of activities that encourage emotional well-being, inclusivity, and friendship. 

The program ends in a 5k race in which all boys run together and receive medals. While medals are fun for kids to collect, the biggest takeaway from their experience is the mindset, growth, and confidence they receive upon completion.  Every child in receives a commemorative medal to celebrate this incredible achievement. This energetic, family-friendly event encourages boys to build healthy habits.

Here are this season's celebratory 5k event details:
