Sunday, September 21, 2014 from 8:30 AM to 11:45 AM (PDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Resilient Bodies. Strong Minds. Visionary Leaders.
Whether running a meeting, running a team, running a board or business or running for public office, it takes courage.
We only have one world. Making responsible and compassionate decisions in our day to day life have impacts. What can we do to reduce pollution, deficiency and waste for an equitable and sustainable future?
This September, we are collaborating with VIEN TRUONG, Environmental Equity Director at Greenlining Institute, to help us build awareness and explore accessible actions that support clean energy.
Access your will. Leverage your skill. Let's bring it!
What to Expect
A detailed itinerary will be sent to registered participants no later than Thursday, September 18, 2014 including what to bring, transportation options, recommended running routes, discussion deets and more. Below is a snapshot of what to expect*:
- Coffee, welcome, warm-up.
- Workout! Multiple recommended routes provided based on your personal needs + rolling dynamic flow and core strengthening with restorative yoga practitioner Lori Marguiles.

We all benefit from the TIME for new innovations to emerge, SPACE for them to take shape, and the SUPPORT to act on and to sustain. Sometimes that time, space and support takes the form of stretching outside our comfort zone.
