Give Running teaches youth, through running and volunteerism, character traits and skills for success in all aspects of life.
We share our love for running as well as the many benefits and opportunities running fosters — such as improved health, self-confidence, and new friendships — by collecting, cleaning, and donating new and used running and athletic shoes to disadvantaged youth in developing countries and local inner-city communities.
Give Running also holds youth running camps focusing on goal-setting, teamwork, leadership, and personal best effort to emphasize the broader application of lessons learned through sports. Many of these runners also initiative service learning shoe drives and fundraising campaigns.
Together, we can empower deserving youth from Los Angeles to Haiti to Africa by giving them a chance to lace ‘em up, take a step forward — and never stop running!
