Janji aims to makea global impact on the foodand water crisis through its running apparel. The design of the shorts is based on the flags of the countries that the apparel benefits, countries starting with Kenya and Haiti. With each piece of apparel sold proceeds fund organizations in each country providing sustainable solutions like nutritional medicines and water pumps.
The idea for Janji began on the way to the NCAA Division III national track meet whencollegiate runners Dave Spandorfer and Burnstein were motivated by the idea toend the food and water crisis through the power of running. They chose thename, Janji, which means ‘promise’ in Malay, because their organization isbuilt on the promise to ‘run for another.’ Janji continues to gain nationwide recognition andthe attention of many inspired running store owners.
