Janji running apparel makes its debut in Davis, CA
For the first time ever, runners can make a difference by purchasing socially conscious running apparel
Fleet Feet in Davis, CA supports Kenya and Haiti by carrying Janji running apparel in their running store.
Janji aims to make a global impact on the food and water crisis through its running apparel. The design of the shorts is based on the flags of the countries that the apparel benefits, starting with Kenya and Haiti. Proceeds from apparel sold fund organizations in each country providing sustainable solutions like nutritional medicines and water pumps.
The idea for Janji originated when collegiate runners were motivated by the idea to end the Global Food and Water Crisis through the power of running. They chose the name, Janji, which is the Malaysian word for ‘promise,’ because their organization is built on the promise to ‘run for another.’
Janji has also partnered with Haitian Olympian Moise Joseph to fight the malnutrition crisis in Haiti. During the 2012 London Olympics, Janji and Moise Joseph, who will represent Haiti in the 800 meter run, will work together to raise awareness and alleviate childhood malnutrition
“By working with Janji I hope that this has a huge impact within the communities of foreign countries. I hope to one day see kids drinking clean water without a problem.”
With the Olympics approaching this summer they hope to inspire people to not just run for themselves, but to “Run for Another” and use the sport to make the world a better and healthier place.
