Run It Forward 2014
On March 2, 2014 runners in the second annual Run it Forward campaign left Orlando, Florida headed for San Antonio, Texas to inspire and motivate kids (and families) in some of the poorest areas along the Gulf Coast.
Along the way this group of runners stop in schools to give speeches to kids and let them know that nothing is impossible if they are willing to work to achieve their dreams.
The are pointing out to the kids the word impossible actually tells them they can “I’m possible.”
Jacoby Shaddix, his wife Kelly, and his younger brother Bryson Roatch have joined the movement to educate, inspire and motivate, and empower families and kids.
At each stop the team stops to make motivational speeches, interact with kids, and make donations to some of the poorest schools along the route.
Jacoby Shaddix absolutely gives new meaning to Born with Nothing Die with Everything when you consider at one point as a child he was homeless and living in a car, and now he and his family are doing everything they can to quietly give back and bring hope to kids and families.
