Amazing Partnership with Rackets and Runners – Vancouver
Today, 8 of our awesome marathon team members went to Rackets and Runners on Oak Street and West 23rd to get outfitted with brand new running shoes. Rackets and Runners has partnered with New Balance Canada to provide running shoes to our Streetfront students.
The kids were so excited to get outfitted by professional staff, who evaluated their specific needs and set them up with amazing New Balance running shoes. After months of training on anything but proper footwear, the kids couldn’t believe what real shoes felt like.
Thanks again to Rackets and Runners and New Balance Canada for investing in the futures of disadvantaged youth. We’ll make you proud when we knock the Seattle Marathon out of the park.
