Giving Back

sneakers 4 funds

Through our partnership with Sneakers 4 Funds, your shoes can make a global impact on poverty! Sneakers 4 Funds takes your gently used running shoes and sells them at a low price to small business owners in third world countries. This organization promotes commerce and entrepreneurship in countries like Haiti where 24% of the population makes less than $1.23 a day. You can donate your gently used shoes to Runners’ Retreat, and we then give them to Sneakers 4 Funds!


For more than 30 years, AbbaCare has served women facing unplanned pregnancies by providing free pregnancy services. AbbaCare offers free ultrasounds, pregnancy testing, and STD/STI testing and treatment. We help sponsor AbbaCare’s fall fundraising banquet as well as give yearly contributions to their organization.

The laurel center

The Laurel Center has provided help and shelter to victims of domestic abuse for more than 30 years. Yearly, more than 100 people take refuge in their shelters and more than 2,500 people find support through their many services. We primarily support the Laurel Center through race proceeds from the Loudoun Street Mile. Since 2002, we have raised more than 35,000 dollars for this local non-profit. Every year, Runners’ Retreat hosts the Loudoun Street Mile which gives all of its proceeds to the Laurel Center. The race just concluded its 35th year and raised over 5,000 dollars.

Blue Ridge hospice

Blue Ridge Hospice provides care to those suffering from terminal illness or grieving the loss of a loved one. Their physicians and other team members guide individuals and their families through the grieving process. Their staff members include nurses, chaplains, therapists, counselors, and volunteers. We partner with this organization through money raised from your used shoe donations. All money Runners’ Retreat raises from Sneakers 4 Funds goes to Blue Ridge Hospice.
