Point 2 Priorities Program
ABOUT THE POINT 2 PRIORITIES PROGRAM
As a small business, Point 2 cares about giving back to the community where we live. Starting in the Fall of 2016, we will be launching the Point 2 Priority Program. Any local nonprofit, charity, community partner, school, etc. are invited to share about their upcoming needs. We want to creatively find opportunities that the Point 2 runners and community can raise awareness, contribute funds, and give back to programs. We run together to reach goals. Let’s make it a goal to better our community together.
If you would like more information on how to get involved or have an idea, email Jackie at email@example.com!

Hurricane Harvey Relief
We collected monetary funds for the American Red Cross to give to Hurricane Harvey victims in September 2017. Together we were able to raise $324.00 for those affected by the hurricane. These donations were sent through our local American Red Cross to provide food, shelter, clothing, and other relief items. Thanks to our amazing donors!!
Link Shoe Drive
In July 2017, we teamed up with Flat-Out Events and donated over 2,000 shoes to Link of Hampton Roads, the Peninsula’s largest homeless shelter. Link was able to give the shoes out to those in need and our community really came together to give back to this organization!
Girls on the Run Community Drive Event

We set goals… and YOU helped us reach them! A HUGE thank you to everyone that braved the weather and helped us fundraise for GOTR Hampton Roads and hang out with HOKA!
We capped the night out raising $650 with a goal of $400!
This allowed us to provide a GOTR Hampton Roads team with team swag and two pairs of shoes for girls who could not afford them. Thanks for being an awesome community–together we can make a difference!
