605 Running Company is happy to announce that in partnership with Brooks Running and private donors we will be outfitting all of the South Dakota, Special Olympic Athletes traveling to the USA Games in Orlando, Florida this June with new running shoes.
At the 1st Saturday Group Run on April 2nd, community runners were able to raise over $600 dollars to help offset travel costs for South Dakota, Special Olympics Athletes. While planning the fundraising event at the store Greg received a phone call from his Brooks representative.
“The timing was incredible. What started out as a 1st Saturday Group Run fundraising challenge blossomed into a successful partnership with Brooks. Our community is helping to offset travel expenses and the store is able to outfit South Dakota athletes with great footwear.” Said Greg Koch, Co-Owner of 605 Running Company.
Founded in 2014, the mission of the shop is to enhance the running community as a locally owned and operated running specialty outfitter. No matter what your abilities, pace, or running history the 605 Running Company is inclusive to ALL runners.
Special Olympics is an unprecedented global movement which, through quality sports training and competition, improves the lives of people with intellectual disabilities and, in turn, the lives of everyone they touch.
“Our work isn’t done yet. We set out a goal to raise $1,100, which is estimated travel costs for one athlete to attend the USA Games this June.” Confesses Koch.
