One of the best parts of being a small business owner is the opportunity to make a real difference in our community. But with over 250 organizations asking us for financial assistance each year, we have reached the point where the amount we could give each group was too small to really make a difference. While we appreciate and applaud each organization’s will to do good and benefit important causes and charities, we wanted to focus our dollars to make a bigger impact in our community.
In that light, we established a scholarship that allows an inner city Hartford student-runner the opportunity to go to college. “Run to a Better Future” is a $10,000/year scholarship that is renewable for 4-years because we want the recipient to be able to afford a full four years of college and not have to drop out after the first year due to financial reasons.

Additionally, we choose to support the following events/organizations with which we are closely involved:
We are also happy to donate a $25 gift certificate to any organization’s fundraiser that supports an active lifestyle (i.e. a running or walking event, triathlon, school fundraiser to support the purchase of athletic equipment, etc). If you meet these requirements, please email your request, including the event name and beneficiary, to Steph at least 2 weeks before your event.
