Making Life Fun, Safe and Meaningful

About Us

Since our founding in 2005, The Brian Muha Foundation/The Run The Race Center has been welcoming young people of all ages to our home-away-from-home: a fun, safe and productive place where young people can do their homework, get tutoring, play sports, do art, music, dance, tumbling and more. They are served a full, home-cooked meal, can take food home from our food pantry, and most importantly, they can learn about God and how to live life His way.  

"Throw aside every encumbrance that clings and persevere in running the race that lies ahead." Hebrews 12:1

Our Background

Brian's Story

Brian Charles Richard Muha was born on July 23, 1980 at Deaconess Hospital in Cleveland, Ohio. When he was 10 months old his family moved to Westerville, a suburb of Columbus, Ohio. It was the only home he ever knew.

Brian attended St. Paul School and St. Charles Preparatory High School. Because of on-going pain in his heels and ankles, Brian couldn't play sports until he was 14 years old. He then went out for the football team and became a starting running back and defensive back. He lettered three years on the Varsity Team. He also lettered in lacrosse and wrestling and he liked to ski, camp and hike.

Brian was an excellent student. He was in the National Honor Society, won Algebra, Chemistry, and Latin awards and took Honors and Advanced Placement courses in school. He was the freshman class president, student council secretary and student council vice president. Brian was the St. Charles delegate to Buckeye Boys' State in his senior year.

Brian was a loving and caring person who always wanted to help others. He was a regular volunteer at Broadleigh Elementary School, Grant Hospital, and the St. John Community Center. Brian was offered a scholarship to Franciscan University but asked that it be used for someone who wouldn’t be able to attend the school if they didn’t have that help.

Entering his first year of college with 15 credits because of his Advanced Placement work, Brian attended Franciscan University in Steubenville from August 1998 to May 1999. He was in the Honors Program. His goal was to become a doctor.

On May 31, 1999, Brian's short life was ended when two killers who chose Brian's off-campus house at random broke in, assaulted Brian and his friend Aaron Land, and killed them. But Brian did not live - or die - in vain. His kind and charitable spirit lives on in his family and friends who are now committed to helping others in his name.

The Run The Race Club is an after school and summer program for inner city young people. We offer them a safe haven so they don’t have to be on the streets, doing things they really don’t want to do. We offer a food pantry, dinner, a clothes closet, open gym, basketball league, art, computer, library, music and tumbling rooms, chess club, book club, board games, tutoring and homework help: everything a child needs to grow healthy and become productive. Everything is free to the children.
