Charlotte, NC – January 24, 2017 – Feetures!, a leading performance sock brand, continues its mission to inspire healthy lifestyles by partnering with Charlotte-based non-profit Let Me Run. The seven-week running program, led by trained coaches from the community, is designed to help pre-teen and teenage boys learn teamwork, build relationship skills and self-esteem, and empower themselves and others to live active lives.

The sponsorship is a natural fit for Feetures! who is passionate about inspiring kids to be active and healthy. In addition to Let Me Run, Feetures! is a sponsor of Kids Run the Nation, which enabled the organization to increase their grant capabilities in 2016 by 50%, allowing for grants to be awarded to an additional 10-15 deserving youth running programs.

Feetures! is a family-run business based in Charlotte, NC. Founder Hugh Gaither and his two sons, John and Joe, are all active runners and Charlotte locals. “We felt that Let Me Run was just in line with our company’s values of supporting kids programs and getting them active,” says Joe Gaither, Feetures! Director of Marketing. “As a product of the Charlotte community, it was a natural fit to give back to a group that is doing so much for the youth of Charlotte.”

 Let Me Run has coached 13,000 boys in 23 states

Ashley Armistead, founder of Let Me Run, echoed the sentiments, "Feetures! and Let Me Run share common threads in our missions. We both want to see people achieving healthy, active lifestyles and living their personal best. To have the support of a company that has such a stellar reputation for quality and teamwork allows us to further spread our mission and ultimately partner in creating a more peaceful and productive world."

Let Me Run was founded in 2008 by Armistead, after the births of her two sons. “As a mother, I learned that boys are told to ‘man up’ and hide their emotions.” Eager for her boys to have a safe space where they could be themselves, be active and belong, Armistead created Let Me Run. "I knew that exponential growth was possible for Let Me Run if we could bring to light that boys are empathetic and caring, with a strong desire for fairness and justice, because of the value that adds to society."

Since the program’s inception in 2008, Let Me Run has coached over 13,000 boys in 23 different states. As part of the sponsorship, Feetures! will provide product for all Let Me Run regions.
