It started as a fundraiser after the loss of a dear friend and grew into a movement that's changed lives. Run positive uses running events, run clubs and meet-ups to promote running as a way to overcome grief or loss, and create a positive perspective fueled by the accomplishment and natural high running creates.
The organization's mission is simple: promote healthy activity as a conduit for coping with grieving and loss.
Run to overcome negativity. Run to get through grief. Run to set an example to those out there going through tragedy who need something positive to look forward to.
Run Positive was formed by a group of friends who were rocked in the wake of the tragic passing of a mutual friend at age 36. He had left behind two children who really needed that positive example in their lives.
