DICK'S Sporting Goods® Global Running Day Challenge

Wed June 1, 2022
RUN with us on Global Running Day

At DICK'S Sporting Goods we believe in the power of sports to make lasting impacts on people and their communities. That's why we've partnered with RUN to Change Lives to mobilize thousands of runners on Global Running Day. Lace-up with us and move any distance, any pace, from anywhere, and let's see how many miles we can accumulate together on June 1st.



Global Running Day is a worldwide celebration of running that encourages people of all ages and abilities to get moving. This day plays an important role, reminding us of the positives that running can offer and the power of unification. During the past two years, many people have turned to running as a solution to help release anxiety, gain perspective, cope with cabin fever, and keep up wellbeing. 



We are giving away a free pair of shoes and gift certificate! Here's how it works:

✅ Step 1. Join the challenge

✅ Step 2. Join the RUN to Change Lives Facebook Group

✅ Step 3. Post a pre or post RUN selfie in the Facebook Group on June 1st with the story of why you run using the hashtag #GlobalRunningDay. Our team will review and select the selfies and stories that inspire us the most. Tag a friend or two for extra credit.

✅ Step 4. Print and use the DICK'S Sporting Goods coupon below in-store and post a selfie in the Facebook Group from the store and we will enter you to win a $50 gift certificate. RUN to Change Lives is donating $5 to SportsMatter.org with every purchase.

A simple statement, but one that is often overlooked. Sports build character, increase confidence, motivate kids to stay in school and aim for higher education; teaching life lessons that extend well beyond the playing field. Through grants and other support we’ve helped 501c3 organizations, schools, and community teams across all 50 states provide opportunities for youth to play sports. But not everyone has the same access to play sports.

Established in 2011, The DICK’S Sporting Goods Foundation is a tax exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation with a mission to inspire and enable sports participation. It was created by DICK’S Sporting Goods, Inc. as a private corporate foundation to support DICK’S charitable and philanthropic activities.
