Frederick's Book


Running For Their Lives

Running For Their Lives by Frederick Dryden

Running for their lives book

We are excited to introduce our Founder and Executive Director's first book, Running For Their Lives. In 2016, our founder, Frederick Dryden ran a 3-week marathon from Ottawa to Hamilton, ON. He ran over 700 kilometres to create awareness for youth issues in Canada, share findings from our youth SWOT analysis 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 here at home, in Hamilton, and throughout the province."   -Frederick Dryden

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 or speaking engagement below.
