What is Let Me Run?
Let Me Run is a seven-week running program for pre-teen and teenage boys, led by trained coaches from your community. Each team meets twice a week for an hour and fifteen minutes, and the boys exercise and participate in fun activities, which help them learn how to express themselves, reach personal goals, and improve their overall wellness. At the end of the program, the boys celebrate their hard work with a 5k road race.
What does Let Me Run teach boys?
Let Me Run coaches guide the boys through lessons about wellness and well being, like respect, positive competition, and nutrition. Our lesson plans, including “Real Men Show their Feelings, Everyday Heroes, and Getting to Know You,” connect boys sole to soul by encouraging full expression of their individual feelings. Plus, the coaches instruct boys on proper running form and correct stretching techniques.
