Update (7/24/15): Congratulations to the SPCA of Wake County for being selected as our nonprofit partner for The Power of Running for Good campaign. You can find up-to-date news about featured products included in the "Gear that Does Good" program here.
1. SPCA of Wake County
"Founded in Raleigh in 1967, the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) of Wake County is dedicated to creating a more humane community where every adoptable animal has a home. Each year the SPCA rehomes over 3,000 animals through its innovative adoption programs. The mission statement of the SPCA remains as relevant now as it was when it was written in 1967: To protect, shelter and promote the adoption of homeless animals; to provide education about responsible pet ownership and to reduce pet overpopulation through spay/neuter programs."
2. Inter-Faith Food Shuttle
"Inter-Faith Food Shuttle is an innovative hunger-relief organization serving seven counties in and around the Triangle. We believe hunger IS fixable if the community works together to do two things: create sources of healthy food in every low-income neighborhood and grow opportunities for people to provide for themselves by learning job skills or growing their own food. From BackPack Buddies to nutrition education, mobile markets to community gardens, culinary job training to urban agriculture training, we go directly to people in need and create what works to empower them. We feed. We teach. We grow…to create a hunger-free and healthy community."
"InterAct is a private, nonprofit United Way agency that provides safety, support, and awareness to victims and survivors of domestic violence and rape/sexual assault. InterAct also promotes violence-free relationships and communities through collaboration, public information, education, and advocacy. InterAct is the only confidential domestic violence prevention program serving Wake County's twelve municipalities."
4. The Poe Center for Health Education
"The Poe Center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to educate and empower North Carolina children, youth and their families to make choices that increase positive health behaviors. The Poe Center offers a variety of nutrition and physical activity education programs.
