Executive Director

Dave Lee

Dave Lee is a successful entrepreneur from Houston, TX specializing in emerging technologies in the energy and life sciences sectors. With a background as a competitive runner and triathlete, Dave started his first running club – Brian O'Neill's Running Club (BONRC) to simply encourage people of all fitness levels to make running a fun part of their lives. The overwhelming success of Brian O'Neill's Running Club which grew to more than 15,000 members in 6 short years prompted Dave to establish FFP Running Clubs as a non-profit organization with the mission of establishing similar clubs around the country to strengthen the culture of fitness in America.
