Speed Hound and Skid Row Running Club Partners on a Mission to Give People a Second Chance

May 19, 2022

Working together to overcome alcohol and drug addiction in LA metropolitan area

Menlo Park, CA (May 19, 2022) /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ Speed Hound has officially joined forces with Skid Row Running Club to support athletes as they participate in upcoming events, as well as their journey toward a positive future. Speed Hound’s focus on helping everyday athletes achieve the impossible is the perfect supplement to Skid Row Running Club’s mission: to use the power of running, cycling and triathlon to improve the lives of those who are at risk of homelessness and addiction.

Skid Row Running Club is an organization that goes far beyond running together a few times a week, they serve as a resource and family for all of their members. Tracy Hunt, a representative for SRRC, is incredibly grateful for the collaboration ahead. She’s thankful for both the financial support and cycling equipment Speed Hound will provide. As Tracy mentioned, SRRC’s members don’t have access to some of the necessities for their upcoming triathlon and other events, so Speed Hound’s support is crucial.

Speed Hound is looking forward to joining Skid Row Running Club as a partner in helping club members realize their goals and conquer drug and alcohol addiction, with both equipment and financial aid. In May, about twenty members of the club will be embarking on a 500 mile bicycle ride from Grand Canyon to Santa Monica where donations from Speed Hound will be put to good use.

“I started Speed Hound as a brand that is focused on achieving a double bottom line – doing well and doing good. This partnership with Skid Row is a significant opportunity for us to do good. Everyone can use a second chance and Skid Row is making a huge difference at the local level through athletics.” said Sam Chi, Founder and CEO of Speed Hound. In addition to the recovery system, Speed Hound will be outfitting all Skid Row Running Club members with technical cycling apparel and supplies- everything from tires to tools to nutrition. These athletes will be the first to have access to Speed Hound’s Pro Percussion Gun, a product that launches to the public on May 23rd.
