Fleet Feet Sports Sacramento and Mizuno are excited to announce our new partnership with the local Oak Hill Youth Racing Team. This partnership will off-set the cost of all Oakhill Racing participants uniforms, making the sport of youth cross country and track & field more accessible to our local youth athletes. Starting in the Spring of 2016, Fleet Feet Sacramento & Mizuno will also support The Power to Inspire Scholarship. This scholarship will cover membership fees for two participants each season. The recipients will be chosen from athletes who submit a story about how they have inspired others or need to find their own inspiration through running.
The Power of Running to Inspire
This partnership was made possible by the support received from Mizuno as a part of the Fleet Feet Sports national campaign called The Power of Running. Mizuno support, "The Power of Running to Inspire", has one stipulation and that was to utilize the money to improve our community and inspire our community through running. Fleet Feet Sacramento is the original Fleet Feet Sports location founded in 1976 and has been committed to our community for almost 40 years and our mission is simple; At Fleet Feet Sacramento, we believe in improving lives through fitness.
Fleet Feet Sacramento’s General Manager, Dusty Robinson, had this to say about the new partnership:
“Fleet Feet Sacramento’s focus of philanthropy is youth fitness, with our biggest effort being our free after-school running program called ProjectFit. ProjectFit has supported over 5,000 athletes over the last 5 years. Our next area of emphasis was to support youth racing. When Mizuno approached us with The Power of Running to Inspire we knew exactly where we wanted to go with the support. We are honored to support such a wonderful group of kids and their pursuit of running excellence. We would also like to thank all of our loyal customers for supporting our business. Without your commitment to shopping local we couldn't make programs like this possible."
