Community Engagement

Vibram and Team Hoyt Running Chairs began collaborating in 2016 to help individuals with disabilities experience the “thrill of the race!” Team Hoyt Running Chairs has been manufacturing their chairs with the ultimate goal of inclusion; Vibram supported this initiative by donating two chairs to teams in need for races in 2017. Vibram gifted a Hoyt Running Chair to a triathlon team in Chihuahua, Mexico, and a chair to Denna Laing and Bobby Carpenter, who competed in the 2017 Boston Marathon. Vibram is honored to be working with Team Hoyt Running Chairs and we’re constantly inspired by their journeys together to achieve their goals.
