In addition, please read below an important message for the Reebok global community and an overview of the brand’s support initiatives:
Reebok Global Community
This is a unique time in our history. A time where we need to come together – even if we can’t be together. Reebok’s number one priority has been and continues to be the health, safety and well-being of our customers, employees and the greater community. With this in mind, we’re pressing pause on some of our daily operations to give back where we can. This includes:
Support to Global Relief Efforts
The company has provided a cash donation of 3m EUR to WHO (World Health Organization)’s COVID-19 Solidarity Relief Fund in Europe plus 1.25m EUR to the China Youth Development Fund. (The WHO is leading and coordinating the global effort of supporting countries to prevent, detect, and respond to the pandemic).
Supporting Those on the Front Lines with PPE Production and Distribution
At a local level we’ve created a dedicated team solely focused on creating masks, gowns and other personal protective equipment. We will keep you updated on our attempts and successes.
Free Fitness for You and Your Family
Endorphins are critical for both our physical and mental health, particularly in stressful times. That’s why we’re offering free at home fitness and access to our trainers for both you and your family through our online Fitness Hub at Reebok.com.
Showing our Appreciation for Our Heroes
We’ve increased our longstanding company discount to first responders and educators to 50% off. All nurses, military members, educators and first responders can shop 50% off at Reebok.com with no exceptions during this time.
We know none of this is a perfect solution, but we’re pausing to do what we can to help. We’ll continue to update the community on our efforts as they progress and evolve over time. We’re all in this together. #PermissiontoPause
