E-Motion is a new running program for people who have experienced the loss of a child or a sibling. The program is designed by Myra Sack, a bereaved mother and avid runner, in partnership with the Center for Healing and Justice through Sport. It is built on the foundational principle that we can move with the hardest things, rather than moving on from them or away from them.
We are recruiting 10 participants who will comprise the first E-Motion Running Team. Our team runs will begin at Heartbreak Hill Running Company's Newton location every Sunday morning at 10:15am starting on Sunday, February 5th. As a team, we will train for 10 weeks using the power of running, community, ritual, grief, love and loss to enhance our capacities to cope. Our program will culminate in running the Newport Half Marathon together on Saturday, April 15th.
No running experience necessary. We will run with heartbreak.
