Love of the run + path open to all = Third Monday in April
At Third Monday in April, we think running is pretty amazing. On the run, we’ve found friendships and fierceness, confidence and common ground. We aim to share these running truths. It’s also crystal clear to us that running should be a path open to all. No matter what we look like, who we love or where we live. And that’s what you’ll find here: original designs that speak to runners who aren’t afraid to make others think twice. Runners who enjoy a good long run and a good day off. Runners who know running is more than running. We're glad you're here.
In running and in life, some of us are running a tougher route, some of us have a head start, but none of us can go alone. We donate a portion of our proceeds to organizations working to create a world in which we can all run free. 100% of the proceeds from our Til We All Run Free: Black Lives Matter Collection go to organizations fighting for racial justice. To date, we have raised $2000 for Equal Justice Initiative, $1775 for 2:23 Foundation and $225 to the National Black Marathoners Scholarship Fund.
Our new Til We All Run Free Performance line also sends 100% of proceeds to organizations working to make running more accessible to all. We are currently sending these dollars to Students Run LA, a group that welcomes more than 3,250 students of all backgrounds and abilities to train alongside volunteer teachers to complete the Los Angeles Marathon.
We also provide a scholarship for one girl each year to participate in Girls on the Run. Girls on the Run is a life-changing program for 8- to 13-year-old girls that promotes girl empowerment by teaching life skills through lessons and running. Your purchases from our Women's Equality Collection help us do this.
For our Race for Equality line, we will be looking to the community to help guide us where a donation will be most impactful. If you have a suggestion for an organization we should know about, please send them our way. We love to spread the word about organizations helping to make running a more accessible path for all.
The Team - A Family Affair
What started as a dream job (running! + design!) for founder Amie Kurian, has quickly turned into a family affair. You can find Amie brainstorming and designing, while daughters Ali and Evi package orders. Amie's mom, Debbie (the inspiration behind our Women's Equality Collection) currently holds the titles of proofreader and best listening ear around.
It doesn't stop there. Amie and brother Josh recently had the opportunity to collaborate on a video production for Third Monday in April's Race for Equality tees. And when models were needed, Amie's brother Trevor answered the call.
So really, this one-woman show is anything but. And we wouldn't have it any other way.
