Run for the Soul Fundraiser

From August to September 17th, join our efforts to support retiring athletes and help them transition successfully to life after sport! #RunfortheSoul

$12,991Raised of $30,000

An athlete dies twice… The first time when retiring from sport.

Athletic retirement and the transition period that follows is challenging and confusing time for any athlete. Athletes Soul helps athletes navigate this transition and its many challenges: loss of identity, lack of purpose, loss of social connection, poor confidence, etc.

With your support, through our Run for the Soul fundraiser, we can provide one-on-one transition coaching to 20 retiring athletes for 3 months. Join other athletes and former athletes as they get active every day to raise funds for Athletes Soul. 100% of every donation for this event is going to our scholarship fund for athletes.

Get Active & Join the 2023 Run for the Soul fundraiser!

Step 1: Join a team, create a team or participate on your own.

Step 2: Share your personal story of athletic retirement and how you transition to life after sports.

Step 3: Get active (run, walk, swim, bike, row, climb...) every day between September 11th and 27th.

Step 4: Collect donations from your network of friends and family to support Athletes Soul.
