Sara McCarty is the founder of Run Wild My Child, an online resource dedicated to getting kids (and their parents) outside and into nature, one adventure at a time. An attorney by day and mother of three (ages 7, 5 and 1), Sara started blogging over 10 years ago and wrote for several large publications on parenting. She started Run Wild My Child in 2017 to inspire other families to get outdoors and help them find new and creative ways to encourage outdoor play and foster a love of nature.
Run Wild My Child grew quickly and now consists of a creative team of 12 writers/photographers, with 6 additional members of the social media team. Sara was featured in the 40th-anniversary issue of Country Living magazine and Run Wild My Child was featured on a 2-page spread in every issue of Family Fun magazine in 2018, as well as showcased on numerous online sites.
Also married to an attorney, Sara and her husband share a love and passion for the outdoors. Together, they enjoy camping, hiking, fly fishing, snorkeling, canoeing and exploring new places, but their biggest adventure has been parenting. Sometimes just getting out the door with all three kids in tow is an adventure in itself. They’re committed to raising their children to respect and appreciate nature and hope to support, encourage and inspire parents to get outside with their kids, no matter where they live.
