If you follow me on FACEBOOK or INSTAGRAM (if you're not, you should!) than you know who I run for. If you are new to my little corner of the interwebs, than let me share with you: #IRun4Mataya . (you can catch up HERE ).
Please share this post - there is a waitlist (roughly 9 months) for runners to be matched with buddies, it is so long because there is a shortage in buddies. Below is a video that Facebook Stories created as well as an except from the whoIrun4.com blog.
“You can run for me anytime!”
A simple phrase that sparked a movement.
From the I Run 4 Blog Page: We all have friends who say, “run some for me,” because they don’t WANT to run. But what about those who can’t run for physical or developmental reasons? Having been inspired by a close friend battling bilateral hip dysplasia, Founder Tim Boyle discovered a whole new inspiration to run.
Here at IR4, we foster relationships. We want to see runners and buddies alike experience the profound power of encouraging and being supported by people who were once perfect strangers. Running can just be about health. Or it can be about dedicating our miles to and creating awareness for our buddies with special needs whose conditions span the spectrum from total physical disability to developmental delays to autism spectrum disorders, as well as myriad rare conditions we’re only now learning about thanks to our participation in IR4.
Through I Run 4 Michael and its branch organizations Kerri On: I Run 4 Remembrance and IR4 Siblings: The Unsung Heroes, athletes of all levels and kinds find new motivation, purpose, and power for their workouts. It’s about more than miles; it’s about building relationships and bolstering support systems.
We hope you will join with us!
