We’re Joining The #MilesChangeYou Campaign with Mizuno and Back on My Feet

Stride after stride, mile after mile, running sparks some serious changes. No matter how big or small, each step transforms us and helps us become better. We love running’s positive impact, and we’re thrilled to partner with Mizuno and Back on My Feet (BoMF) during the month of April for the #MilesChangeYou campaign:  For each pair of Mizuno shoes sold at JackRabbit, Mizuno will donate $10 to BoMF, a national nonprofit organization that uses running to help those experiencing homelessness transform their lives and achieve independent living through employment, housing, education, and job training opportunities.
