Celebrate the giving spirit in July.
We're partnering with Share Charlotte to launch a national initiative from July 11th – 22nd called Summer Share to raise scholarship funds and in-kind donations to support our curricula. Our goal is to raise 25 full scholarships and 25 in-kind donations. See how you can help us below.
Over the next two weeks, we also want to show you the real impact of a Let Me Run scholarship by sharing scholarship participants' stories in their own words. Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to see every story.
Ways to get involved in Summer Share
25% of our LMR boys would not be able to participate in Let Me Run without a scholarship. Any amount, large or small, will make a lasting impact in their lives. If everyone reading this donated just $10, we'd reach our entire scholarship fund goal for 2016. You can provide a full scholarship for one Let Me Run boy for $100. Donate here.
The Let Me Run curricula teaches boys life lessons about topics including gratitude, anger management, standing up against bullying, and being yourself. Each interactive lesson calls for various supplies. You can help provide supplies for Let Me Run teams by shopping our Wish List. (And if you'd like your donation to remain in your region, include your city and state in the gift message.)
