A Note From The Founder

Flavio Desouza is a former Runner, due to a work accident he can’t run anymore.

Father of an extraordinarily blessed daughter, Sophia. [SophiaRunSophia) Husband of a devoted lovely wife Bianca, and parent of the extraordinary kids Joaquim[cerebral palsy) and Caio[microcephaly).

Flavio is a passionate running enthusiast that live his whole life with a commitment to runners, running and serving as a volunteer in so many events. The desire to help people and contribute to a better world was always present in his life, even when he lived in Brazil [fifteen years ago) he created a project that cared for children in need and integrated them with society through running events He also maintained projects for collecting food and clothing for kindergartens and nursing homes Since arriving in America Flavio had the desire to continue his work here on American soil.

Ever always busy in many activities and jobs never had time to work on the cause, it was until in 2015 an accident at work changed the course of history, now limited and unable to run and compete and with more free time Flavio has matured the idea of creating the PURPOSE RUNNERS in order to remain inserted in the runners universe. Inspired by his earlier projects Flavio had the idea of people being able to run and help at the same time hence came the idea of Purpose Runners Foundation, running for a purpose.

Flavio s primary goal in life is to trust in the Lord with all his heart and soul not to lean on his own understanding but in all his ways acknowledge Him and allow Him to guide his path to serve and contribute to a better world with the power of love and hope.
