You might know Sean Astin as the beloved actor featured in some of the world’s favorite films & shows; Samwise Gamgee, Mikey in The Goonies, Bob in Stranger Things… but Sean has another passion in life — running! After having been an avid runner for most of his life and participating in countless marathons, Sean started a nonprofit called Run3rd5k. His organization encourages young runners in schools to dedicate their runs to a cause or person, and the effect that the instructors have seen in the kids through this practice has been incredibly powerful.
