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 new friendships — by organizing volunteer shoe donation campaigns. Specifically, we provide student leaders with the resources and guidance to successfully collect, clean, and donate new and gently used running and athletic shoes to nonprofit organization supporting disadvantaged youth in local communities and developing countries.

Give Running also conducts sports and service-learning programs with young people focusing on teamwork, leadership, well-being, and personal best effort. Together, we can empower kids near and far by giving them a chance to lace ’emĀ up, take a step forward — and never stop running!
