Run Happy may be our motto, but it could just as easily be Live Healthy. So when we see people and organizations that encourage a healthy, active lifestyle in their communities, we like to give them a leg up.


Giving is more powerful when it's personal.

That's the biggest reason why, every year, we ask each of our employees to donate $300 in merchandise to a cause they care about. It's especially inspiring to see coworkers team up to make an even bigger charitable impact. Cue the warm gushy feelings!


If you're passionate about making a difference, we want to hear about it.

Donating our gear to help fuel the good work of extraordinary organizations is a vital part in creating a healthier, Run Happier world. Brooks donates product samples and gently worn shoes and apparel so people who really need our product can put them to great use.

Thank you for all that you do to give back to the community and for thinking of Brooks as a potential partner in this venture. Brooks, through the Run B'Cause program, is committed to supporting causes that inspire people to run and be active in our local communities and around the world.

If you feel your organization would benefit from a Brooks product donation, please complete the donation request application below for consideration.


Every one of our community service endeavors starts with a single employee.

They find an organization they care about and rally the Brooks troops to join the cause. The more volunteers, the more meaningful the impact, so we give every Brooks employee paid time annually to support their communities.

Some of Our Favorites:

The greatest thing about a great coach is that their greatness doesn't stop when the race is finished.

Their greatness inspires their athletes, affects their communities and motivates their peers. Each year we reward one outstanding cross country or track and field coach through the Brooks Inspiring Coaches Program.
