I’m a RTCL ambassador because I love bringing people together! I love the support and encouragement others bring to a team or group of people! We cannot do life alone, everyone needs someone in their corner and I think this group does just that. Running truly does change a person’s life!

I joined RTCL for the May challenge knowing nothing about the group and within a week I fell in love with the group and everyone in it. I’m a huge people person and the camaraderie of RTCL! I’m passionate about the Vision and want to be a pivotal part of growing our group. I’ve put my whole heart into the group and see it as one big family ❤️ What’s better than that, the answer is nothing!

The energy and encouragement this group provides has proven to be vital to my overall health. I was burnt out from racing and pushing myself to go faster that I didn’t want to really run anymore but didn’t know what else to do. The community has brought me back to why I run. I’ve never been a part of the running community, like many, I just run for fitness, I didn’t think I fit in to the “running world”; RTCL has changed that. We come from all backgrounds, for all reasons, to support and be there for each other. I believe I can be a positive force to the community and provide support to all levels.

Steve UeckerAmbassador
Since joining the original QuaRUNtine challenge in April with Run to Change Lives, I have been impressed with how the group has grown and the incredible support we provide each other. Jason and Gina do a great job in organizing the events and keeping things coordinated. I think RUN to Change Lives is a great way to combine my passion for running with the goal of doing good in our communities and doing our part to make the world a better place.
Heather Donnelly
Heather DonnellyAmbassador
I think Run to Change Lives is an incredible organization with great ideas, values and community. The truth is whether I am an official “ambassador” or not, I will always be an ambassador at heart and will continue to work the mission of RTCL. I have lots of connections and great ideas to enhance the participant experience and help create community.

I have found this group to be very inspirational! It helps keep me motivated and I enjoy motivating others! I’d write more but I’m at 14,000 feet and I can’t feel my fingers… 🏔 🥶
Gina Meachum
Gina MeachumAmbassador
My motto is running keeps me sane, yoga keeps me running.
I am a little bit crazy, just trying to run the crazy off 😛 (My friends tell me I need to keep going…) I am passionate about inclusion, and spreading ALL the love and kindness. I love the sense of accomplishment, calm and community running brings, I love to inspire people to get out and do things that feed their souls and fill their cups.
Craig Roush
Craig RoushAmbassador
In April I was really struggling, my friend Christy Hardy was trying to convince me to look at this facebook group “QuaRunTine”, she kept insisting how great it was… I didn’t believe her. I started to read some, then started to read peoples responses….then I realized maybe there is a small beacon of some kind of hope, these people here actually are encouraging people and are not just bragging about “how awesome” they are at running… I was seriously taken back by it, so I joined the group… I was absolutely blown away (and I still am today), about all the heartfelt responses I was getting. I decided I had to find away to be a part of this group, so I reached out to Jason and Gina.
Kelly Webster
Kelly WebsterAmbassador

Valetta Coleman
Valetta ColemanAmbassador
Besides sharing my love for an active and healthy lifestyle and being a friendly motivator to others, I believe the RUN to Change Lives ambassadors should represent the many different faces and lives that gather here to connect, encourage, and move. We should make sure all our friends feel welcome and supported.

I am passionate about our community. I think I have a lot to offer the group and love the connections that I have been making along the way. I am a growing business myself and want to work with and play with a lot of the members here and recruit more. I think it is nice to have a connection with local events and want to continue being a part of this movement to increase awareness for health, fitness and well being.

I love the message and core values of the group of focusing on local and that all of us can make a difference! I have also never been involved in such a positive, multi level (and discipline) sports group – I love it & am inspired every day & want others to experience it too.

I started running the Turkey Rock Trot in 2014 or 2015 and got involved as an ambassador in 2018. I love the community and helping with events. I also love spreading the word to family, friends, and anyone on social media. Also, the RTCL team motivates me not only to KEEP RUNNING but gets me involved with the Castle Rock community and local businesses (plus, I’m pretty good at hanging race posters 😉 )
Amy Armstrong

My favorite part about running is meeting like-minded individuals and the relationships that I’ve built throughout the years. I’ve participated in RUN to Change Lives’ last two challenges and have been impressed with the positivity and sense of community. I’ve enjoyed the opportunities to contribute and learn from others. The feedback has been uplifting and everyone is such an inspiration! I would be honored to represent and promote RUN to Change Lives while I continue to grow as an athlete! And absolutely have fun doing so 🙂

Being an ambassador for RUN to Change Lives is like giving back to the exact thing that has changed my life. I would like to be able to encourage others to use running as I do, to relieve stress,to keep the mind happy,and to give one the much needed confidence to continue living their best life. My experience even as a new member of the virtual events has been a positive one, and has inspired me to encourage others.

I believe in the transformative power of running and know it can connect to so many people on many different levels. If I can help get someone up and moving, it could change their life! I believe RUN to Change lives is welcoming and providing a non-intimidating outlet for people who are looking to join a community of runners/walkers/joggers!

I enjoy RTCL. Mostly the kudos and emojis that you can send to members puts a smile on my face and hopefully encourages them to complete the journey they are on. I like to help out with any task that is offered.

I have been helping out with the Turkey Rock Trot and Run to Change Lives for years. I love the good and positive light that this organization brings to my community and now has spread across the nation. Plus I’ve ran the Turkey Rock Trot with my family almost every year! I have enough T Shirts to make a blanket 😊
Arun Kallikadavil
Arun KallikadavilAmbassador
I started running 5 years ago signing up for a marathon with no prior experience to be an example to my teen age son and teach the power of determination and perseverance. After I embarked on this journey, I started enjoying it so much so that I created annual goals and always have a 3 year path ahead which I call my AAA plan. Each A stands for the goal for the year. 2020 is my year of Affirmation. This year I want to affirm my ability to endure long and plan to finish 6 marathon distances in 6 months between July and December.
