You Matter Marathon Vision, Mission, & Beliefs
We envision a world where individuals naturally and regularly affirm the significance and value of one another.
The YMM is a global initiative that creates positive connections within and between individuals and communities.
We believe that the world would be a more peaceful and joyful place if every person knew they mattered.
We believe that the path to a more peaceful and joyful world begins with daily acts of connecting in positive and sincere ways that honor our common humanity.
We believe that one way to affirm our own significance is to regularly affirm the significance of others.
Consistent with the You Matter Marathon mission, we stand with the Black community, and all people of color, and support the Black Lives Matter movement as a way to shine a light on racial inequities and injustices.
