Run for the Soul

Join us for our fundraiser from August 22nd to August 28th to support retiring athletes and help them transition successfully to life after sport! #RunfortheSoul

$21,102Raised of $25,000

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 15 retiring athletes for 3 months or more. 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.
