Run As One Organization was created for the purpose of making a difference in a person’s life.  To help this individual achieve goals and dreams they otherwise could not do without an influential “team” surrounding them.

2.5 years ago, I lost an incredible amount of weight and couldn’t even climb a flight of stairs, but today I’m running a marathon with and for Richard, pushing him in a road race wheelchair.  My biggest realization was I didn’t do this alone, I surrounded myself with an influential team, and “run as one” is my way of giving back to the world. is here to invite others to join in and participate and accept the fact that together “as one” we can become something more than by ourselves and one day truly make a difference in someone’s life.  To help others during their own times of sorrow and pain, is the true meaning of living and giving.  Thru your participation we are teaching others, It is ok to be human, ok to be vulnerable.

This year with your help, you can affect the life of Richard Batiste who is stricken with Multiple Sclerosis.

I can’t change the world, but, together, “as one” we can change the life of someone else in the world.


“and do not forget that your life does not belong to you, but is a gift, which you must bring joy to others and lead them to eternal life.  “prayer card given to me from my sister, Sylvie Worth, 2003, who died of breast cancer.
