Local communities are at the heart of Fleet Feet and everything we work to achieve. Whether it’s hosting group runs, fundraising for local charities and organizations, or contributing to national partners like Girls on the Run, Fleet Feet believes that together we can make our communities stronger through strong running communities.
We want to continue to build on the good work that happens at our 180 locally owned and operated locations every day, through our new charitable arm, Do the Run Thing.
The mission of Do the Run Thing is to create and nurture sustainable running communities that improve the health and happiness of the overall community. While this has always been at the heart of what drives our brand, Do the Run Thing will help us continue the good work across our communities through nationalized awareness and unified fundraising efforts.
Our key areas of focus will be:
As of July 2019, Fleet Feet is the official specialty retail / sporting goods partner of SoleMates, a Girls on the Run (GOTR) program that empowers adults to choose an athletic activity or event of their choice and fundraise to provide the opportunity for more girls to participate in Girls on the Run.
Through the SoleMates program, runners commit to a fitness goal and raise money, awareness, and support for GOTR. Learn more about Fleet Feet’s partnership with Girls on the Run here.
This holiday season, you can help Fleet Feet give back to local charities by purchasing a limited edition Do the Run Thing ornament.
At participating Fleet Feet locations, a portion of every Do the Run Thing ornament sold will benefit local partners in your community. Keep the ornament for yourself, or gift your charitable purchase to someone special.
