First off, this group is open to everyone irrespective of skill level. These MeetUp's aren't usually terribly formal. It's a way of saying, "Hey, I'm going to be running here today and you're welcome to join me." If you're an accomplished runner then join me! I'll try to keep up! If you're not a runner, suffering from addiction or have questions about THP and want someone to talk to, then I'm happy to walk with you. -Scott Waldrop RRCA Running Coach / New Balance Running Coach (Raleigh / Durham)
This is a social running group led by your local "THP Runs" (The Herren Project) Team Runners and Ambassadors. We are marathoners, ultra runners, trail runners, triathletes and some RRCA Certified Running Coach(s). Again, we cannot stress enough that this group is open to EVERYONE: those simply wanting to meet new people and have fun, non-athletes, accomplished athletes, those in recovery, those seeking recovery, and those seeking to making a difference. ABOUT THE HERREN PROJECT:
The Herren Project is a Non-profit foundation started by former NBA player Chris Herren. Assists individuals & families struggling w/addiction. REACHING 1 PERSON, 1 FAMILY AT A TIME. Our mission is:
* Positively impact the lives of those suffering with addiction by providing effective treatment navigation.
* Educate youth and at-risk populations on the importance of a healthy lifestyle and provide techniques to handle pressure within their lives, their community or their family situation.
* Provide scholarships to programs, clinics and camps to increase self confidence, motivation and develop a firm foundation on which to build success.
THP Runs is a group that participates in road races, marathons, ultra-marathons and Spartan races to celebrate life and strive for a better tomorrow. Every dollar we raise will support The Herren Project’s areas of focus including treatment navigation, educational initiatives and mentoring programs in the hopes of saving a life and making a difference in the lives of those touched by addiction.
