Sponsor Shout Out: Academy Sports + Outdoors

By Amy on 2/21/2017

Girls on the Run's mission of inspiring girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident is an important part of why we became a sponsor of the program.  The core values and lessons that are being taught to these girls has a great impact on all aspects of their lives. Through mentorship, fitness, and teamwork they have been able to provide many young girls with the opportunity to have big dreams for themselves, while also making it fun!  


Academy Sports + Outdoors shares those same values, and for that reason, are very happy to be a part of such a great organization. Each year we look forward to making sure all of the girls have shoes to achieve those dreams. We always enjoy hosting them in our stores to pick up their race bibs for their big run, no matter how cold it is outside. Finally, we are excited to be onsite at the races to see all of the smiling faces as they cross the finish line.


Our partnership with Girls on the Run has allowed us to introduce our brand to many people in the community. It is an honor to partner with Girls on the Run, an organization that truly makes a difference in the community.
