To kickstart this initiative, Renner is opening up about his own remarkable recovery and running journey that embodies the spirit of “Let’s Run There.”

Following a harrowing snowplow accident in January 2023 that resulted in 38 broken bones and severe chest trauma, doctors initially doubted Renner’s ability to walk, let alone run, again. Undeterred, Renner defied expectations and embarked on a determined path to recovery. Remarkably, just 10 months after the accident, he achieved a significant milestone by posting his first run, supported by Brooks’ Ghost Max footwear.

In a newly released video, Renner shares his inspiring story, reflecting on how running not only aided in his physical recovery, but also became a source of mental fortitude and personal triumph. His experience resonates deeply with the core message of “Let’s Run There,” encouraging individuals of all backgrounds to embrace the challenge of reaching their goals, no matter how daunting they may seem.

“I’ve been wearing Brooks shoes throughout my recovery and they’ve really made a difference. When they reached out with the idea to partner for their new brand platform, ‘Let’s Run There,’ it resonated with me,” Renner said in a statement. “‘Let’s Run There’ invites everyone to use the power of movement to reach their own destination, or ‘there.’ My ‘there’ is being able to run again, and I hope my story motivates others to run towards their own ‘there.”

The campaign, resonating with the idea that each person is on a unique path towards personal fulfillment, invites everyone to discover their own “there” – whatever and wherever that destination may be.
