A Message From Mike!
  

Greetings, Friends!

It is possible the quarterly allocation of digital ink I receive from my friend, Dolomite Dave (our newsletter editor, among many other things…), will sometime allow me to exclusively allocate energy to the active lifestyle we all embrace - - and that we love sharing with others.  But as we dive headlong into Spring, with our beloved azaleas and dogwoods near bloom, it remains rightfully evident that our personal well-being and our pursuit of worthy targets (set at the onset of the new year, perhaps!) will continue alongside a scale of suffering that is distressing to all of us.  Not unlike the countless lives upended by a global pandemic, and the families and communities where racial injustice resides and still prevails, the unprovoked and unjustifiable invasion of Ukraine bothers us deeply.  With a count of citizens that is more than the entire Atlanta metropolitan area who have fled their homeland for safety, the refugee crisis has torn families apart and created hardship I’m not capable of comprehending.  As a retailer, it disturbs me that honest, hardworking shopkeepers in Kyiv, Lviv, Mariupol - - and numerous other locations I cannot even pronounce properly - - have needfully traded the keys to their own front doors for loaded WAC-47s to, instead, stand and fight at the markers of their respective city limits…  If even for a moment, think about someone in Ukraine whose regimen, routine and responsibilities might have somehow mirrored yours at beginning of this year - - and how much has now likely changed for them.

As such, this “quarterly message” contains only a single item about which we want you know and kindly consider.  More specifically, it is for so many reasons we are now connecting with Atlanta-based, Ukrainian Congress Committee, to raise additional funds for the critical humanitarian work they are doing throughout Ukraine.  And we hope you will join us…  To do so, please purchase one (or more!) of the t-shirts depicted in the design below to show your local support for this global concern.  This Stand With Ukraine link will take you to our website – and ALL (100%!) of the proceeds will go to UCCA .  Let’s send a message that the RUNATL community moves together and stands united!  

As always, much thanks and many blessings to you!  Our best miles are, indeed, just ahead!

Mike


Stand With Ukraine 

 

This limited-edition tee is a great way to make a statement AND make a difference!  Our “Stand With Ukraine” Tee contributes 100% of the proceeds to the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America, as they serve the humanitarian needs of Ukrainian citizens displaced and disastrously impacted by the recent aggressions in their country.  This unisex t-shirt is a splendidly soft polyblend by Next Level, with crisp graphics and an important message of unity.

Pre-Orders only (thru April 11th).

NOTES:  As a unisex tee, those who traditionally wear Women’s sizes should order one (1) size smaller; all orders will ship the week of April 18th.
