Q: Is Running on Love only about running?
A: NO! Absolutely not! Running on Love is about showing your love, not only through our words, but your actions. It is what motivates us all to put one step in front of the other and continue on our journey. It is the fuel for our lives! You can walk, bike, run, whatever you choose! The how is not as important as the why, which means everything. Running on Love is deciding to move forward, take action, and give in the name of someone you love. Running on Love has walkers, runners, and everyone in between!
