  • What charities does A Year of Running support?

A Year of Running was founded with goal to encourage everyone to get healthy and active by getting out and run/walk. Our primary focus is to the athlete to encourage them to stay active, and not to raise funds for any particular organization. Having said that we would be very open to partner with many schools and charities and let them use our events to help them raise funds. We also as a company donate funds to our community encouraging the next generation to live a healthy and active life style. For more information contact Chiara at chiara@ayearofrunning.com for virtual events.
