2013 Recap

Run The Walk started originally as a camp/clinic company.  We were just former College/Pro players/coaches who wanted to help young athletes take their talents to the
next level.

By the middle of our first year, we realized that the philosophies we live by and the teachings we offer during our camps and clinics could be summed up in one simple
phrase:

Run The Walk: The ability to take what you are currently doing to the next level.

By the end of year one, we had branched out, holding running events, setting up corporate challenges, and speaking to people in all walks of life, telling them what RTW is all about. By year two we knew that we were promoting a lifestyle rather than just trying to help kids with the game of basketball.

The more people we reach and who begin “Running The Walk” with us, the more
motivated we become to give our maximum to advance the RTW movement.

Above is a recap of our second year.  We have big things planned for year three, and can’t wait to keep inspiring and helping others achieve their dreams!

Keep Running!

No Labels Run @Mira Lagos for Danny Jones Rachel’s Challenge

1st Annual Is A Success

RunTheWalkStartingLine-32

The first annual No Labels No Limits run was a success!  The event brought awareness to anti-bullying, and benefited Danny Jones Rachel’s Challenge. Bringing together families, friends, and even people from out of the state coming to run on behalf of the cause.

We saw people who never thought of running a 5K before all the way up to the experts of running who came out ready to win it all.  With a little over 300 participants, this inaugural event left an impact.

As we set up early that morning, an older woman, who was out for a walk asked what was going on?  After hearing what we were doing, her response was, “It’s great seeing people who would normally be inside on a Saturday out as a family doing something active and for a cause”.

We were able to create a spirit week Leading up to the event, thanks to Principle Moore and his awesome staff at Danny Jones.  Julie Jager, who is a counselor at Danny Jones, really made things happen within the school.  The Friday before the event we had two Pep Rally’s that featured yours truly in the pie-eating contest.  The band played, cheerleaders cheered, and the students all got into the chants and festivities.

Being able to reach our youth with an anti-bullying running event was fun.  We were able to raise a little over $1,400  for Danny Jones’ Rachel’s Challenge.  We have to extend a huge thank you to the following sponsors who helped make this all happen:

Rush Creek Church, Chili’s, The Children’s Courtyard, Broad Street Postal Center, Planet Beach Contempo and Spa Mansfield , First Texas Homes, Corner Café Bakery, Bloomfield Homes, Mooyah Burger, Rally Zone Tees, Mira Lagos Development, Shue Studios, D.J. Shon, Dream Big, Camp Gladiator, Jules with Herbal Life, Mansfield High School Key Club, and The Grand Prairie Air Hogs.

We are more motivated than ever to helping make an impact.  Although the No Labels No Limits Run is only a one-day event, it was a place where we saw people from all walks of life put there labels to the side and come out and share a day together.  Our goals are to make this event better every year, and everyone who supported the cause, either by participating or sponsoring, you helped us make this event a great success!  We look forward to next year!  Thank you for running with us!!

2nd Annual Run At Rancho

The second annual Race at Rancho Viejo was a success.  A special thanks to every volunteer that helped make this race a smooth experience for the runners, and a huge thank you to the runners who helped make this event special.  Without our sponsors we would not have been able to make this happen, and of course without the cooperation of Rancho Viejo this couldn’t even be possible.

We were pumped to see all of the runners out there supporting Hope 4 kids Living With Diabetes.  There were, of course medals given to the top finishers, but the day belonged to everyone who participated in making the event a success.  With just a little over 200 registrants, we are happy to announce that we raised $1,660 for Hope.

We look forward to the next event at Rancho Viejo.  Until the next time we see you,

Keep Running!
