When word got out that there was a group of young girls running around the nation together, challenging themselves every week to grow stronger as athletes and as people, and approaching their goals with focus, passion and grace, there was no question: ASICS had to hop on their path and run right alongside them.
ASICS was founded on the humble idea that sports have the power to transform lives and bring communities together through the universal language of movement. Nearly sixty years later, the synergies between this fundamental company vision and the mission of Girls On the Run has inspired ASICS to become the exclusive National Footwear Sponsor for the organization. By offering footwear, hosting local chapter events and providing on-going financial contributions to the program, ASICS is thrilled support their lifetime journey toward a happier, healthier and more balanced life through running. www.asics.com
