Running with kids

Leavenworth kids run with Andrew Holm.

In 2012, his friend Marlene Farrell encouraged Andrew to start sharing his enthusiasm with young people.

Thus began his stint co-coaching at Peshastin-Dryden School, where Marlene had recently established a running club. The club later moved to Osborn Elementary.

“Marlene spearheads the effort, while I gather the tail. Together, we’ve evolved into a good co-leadership,” the coach went on earnestly.

“Kids want to run. It’s awesome, the number of signups and interest we get. It’s simple and pure: We get Cascade High School kids, recent graduates, parents, and older siblings, all coming out to volunteer.

“We end up down at Enchantment Park, running by the river in the spring. All these kids, these volunteers,” he marveled, “without distractions for a couple of hours. No phones or videos. All just running for fun, for the sake of being out.”
