What is the Runnin’ for Rhett Non-Profit Foundation? Runnin’ for Rhett is a non-profit foundation that was founded on December 7th, 2007 by a grass roots group of family and friends that love Rhett Seevers. The group has grown to over 1,000 supporters. Our mission is to LET RHETT’S STORY INSPIRE those who feel defeated, UPLIFT those who feel down and ENCOURAGE all to take that first step, and MOVE INTO LIFE. Our members run together to train for a number of races (half marathons and marathons) throughout the year. Visit our Training page for more info.
