In Appreciation and Memory of Barbara Meyer

Let Me Run was fortunate to have Barbara Meyer believe in our mission when we were a young non-profit not able to seek big grants or sponsors. She took a leap of faith with Let Me Run because our mission resonated with Barbara’s hopes for everyone that she met. Barbara accepted, embraced and celebrated herself and every person for exactly who they are. She took the time to recognize and appreciate the unique personalities of each person and this created unshakable bonds with many people. Barbara’s generous spirit has and will inspire many boys to live into their full unique potential, develop deep relationships, and embrace life’s experience.

Let Me Run Sponsors

Black Arch

BlackArch Partners has been a leading sponsor of Let Me Run since our formation.  Not only does BlackArch sponsor our programs from a financial perspective, but they have consistently sent teams of professionals to take time out of their busy schedules and coach as well.  Our organizations have many shared values that seek to create a better place for the youth in our community, teaching the more vulnerable boys in the Charlotte area how to live a healthy, active lifestyle.  Nowhere is this more important than in some of our city’s most challenged neighborhoods, where a void in mentorship is all too often filled by undesirable role models.  

BlackArch’s professionals strive to make tangible progress towards providing the boys with the mentorship and values they’ll need to make good decisions and lead healthy, successful lives at each and every practice.  One of BlackArch’s associates wrote this in an article for the BlackArch blog:  

For me, this experience has opened my eyes to some of the challenges our city’s youth are faced with, as well as the importance of the Let Me Run mission.  In the few short weeks that I’ve been a part of the organization, I’ve experienced 5th grade boys dealing with issues such as gang violence and exposure to drugs and alcohol.  Faced with these challenges, it’s all the more important that the boys learn how to set goals, receive the positive reinforcement and encouragement to achieve those goals, and learn about the qualities that make people successful (and unsuccessful).  Let Me Run provides that and much more.  It’s a transformative experience for the boys and coaches alike.”
