Running For Their Lives by Frederick Dryden
We are excited to introduce our Founder and Executive Director's first book, Running For Their Lives. In 2016, Frederick Dryden completed a 3-week marathon from Ottawa to Hamilton, ON. He ran over 700 kilometres to create awareness for youth issues in Canada and raise funding for program sustainability. Running For Their Lives captures his at-risk teen years, how it led to the founding of Liberty For Youth and how running for youth changed everything.
"Although the book highlights my run, it's much more than that; it's a call to action to help at-risk youth "
Running For Their Lives was released November 7th, 2018 at our annual Power of a Changed Life Fundraising Gala. You can purchase Running For Their Lives at Liberty For Youth or at a book signing, the office or upcoming speaking engagement below. It is also available on Amazon here.
