Running is about giving it all.
Schools in need receive training shoes, racing shoes, uniforms, and warm-up apparel for a 30-person team. Each recipient also receives $2,000 to help with expenses, including pay-to-play fees, meet entries, transportation costs, etc. Brooks hopes the Booster Club opens doorways for young runners who otherwise might not be able to participate in the sport we love so much. We want to ensure that running remains accessible, so high-schoolers can enjoy the same lasting and impactful experiences we’ve had with the sport.
We’ll accept applications on a running basis, but the finish line will be on October 1, 2021 when we begin reviewing submissions.
