Sasha Wolff is the founder of "Still I Run" – Runners for Mental Health Awareness. "Still I Run,"is a community of warriors promoting the benefits of running for mental health and was founded in 2016 after Sasha discovered the benefits of running after a brief hospitalization for depression and anxiety. "Still I Run" began as a Facebook page and website and has evolved into a non-profit with over 13,000 people in the community. When she isn’t working on growing "Still I Run," Sasha works full time as global communication professional for a furniture manufacturer in Michigan. She is raising her two young daughters with her husband, Greg. In her “spare” time she runs for her mental health, enjoys Lake Michigan, and spends time with her family and friends. 



Our Mission

Still I Run is a community where people can share their experience of dealing with depression/anxiety etc. through running or any other type of physical activity. We encourage one another to take time out of our busy lives to run for our mental health. Through various programs we offer, we hope to educate others about running for mental health, raise mental health awareness, provide encouragement to others, and help people experiencing hardship get started in their running journey.
