GivingTuesday is a day that encourages people to do good. And at Gazelle Sports, we don’t celebrate GivingTuesday just one day every year.
We celebrate 365 days.
We believe in giving back to the communities we call home, which means that community is ingrained in our business as a core value. We started the Gazelle Sports Foundation to develop an avenue for continual, sustainable support of our communities. Through the foundation, we’ve issued grants to programs and organizations who are working to lower barriers to movement in vulnerable communities.
Gazelle Sports is committed to the ongoing success of Gazelle Sports Foundation grantees- that’s why we make the following investments every year, to the foundation:
- 2% of profits from all Gazelle Sports retail locations
- Equal share of profits from Gazelle Sports Signature events, alongside other community charity partners
- Funds raised by individual charity runners through Gazelle Girl Half Marathon, 10k and 5k
In the last year, we’ve raised nearly $30,000 for the foundation through our signature events, and were able to issue $25,000 in new grants.
Next year, we plan to increase our impact across the state of Michigan, and we hope that you’ll join us by participating in a signature event, joining our charity runner team, and shopping at your local Gazelle Sports store this holiday season.
Join us in doing good, everyday.
