1 for You 1 for Youth

1 for You 1 for Youth is a joint initiative by New York Road Runners and New Balance to provide young runners with new high-quality running shoes. For each pair of shoes purchased at the NYRR RUNCENTER featuring the NB Run Hub, New Balance will donate a pair of running shoes to NYRR’s youth programs. In turn, NYRR distributes the running shoes to participants in their free youth running programs.*


Over 4,500

In its first year, NYRR distributed over 4,500 pairs of brand new New Balance running shoes to participants in Rising New York Road Runners through 1 for You 1 for Youth.


Since 2007, NYRR has distributed more than 12,500 total pairs of shoes to participants in its free youth running and fitness programs across the country. 


*1 FOR YOU 1 FOR YOUTH DISCLOSURE: In 2018, for every pair of athletic shoes sold to a customer at the NYRR RUNCENTER featuring the NB Run Hub in New York City, New Balance shall donate a pair of new athletic shoes to New York Road Runners, a 501(c)(3) public charity, for the benefit of a New York Road Runners supported youth program, up to a maximum value of $300,000 based on New Balance’s then current cost.
