Our Mission

Give Running brings together and builds up young people through running and service to promote character traits and skills for success in life.

We share our love for running and the gifts that running fosters–including improved health, education, self-confidence, and friendships–by organizing volunteer shoe donation campaigns.

Specifically, we guide young leaders and their communities to successfully collect, clean, and donate new and gently used running and athletic shoes to nonprofit organizations supporting those farthest from opportunity in local communities and developing countries.

Give Running also facilitates sports and service-learning programs with young people focusing on teamwork, leadership, well-being, and personal best effort. Together, we can provide youth with the opportunity to lace ’em up, take a step forward, and never stop running!

Give opportunity. Give joy. Give Running. Follow us Facebook Twiter YouTube RSS
