Since JoeFroyo started, we’ve been passionate about giving back. With Team JoeFroyo, we’re able to support two things we care deeply about: local athletes and living a healthy lifestyle.
Team JoeFroyo offers both financial and nutritional support to local athletes and sports clubs. In the past, we have provided running uniforms and bicycle kits, operating budget assistance, funded children’s after school athletic programs and, of course, supplied complimentary pre- and post-race JoeFroyo.
We are deeply indebted to long-time Team JoeFroyo members, Old Town Bicycle and the Tacoma City Running Club, who have both been supporters of JoeFroyo from the beginning. But we are always looking for driven, passionate athletes to join Team JoeFroyo!

This supermom not only took second place in the 2017 Boston Marathon Masters (clocking in at 2:40:02), she also wins the race called “Single Momhood” every day…all while overcoming an eating disorder and practicing as a Physician’s Assistant in Vascular Surgery at 40-50 hours a week! (Um, Kate, you’re amazing.)
Sport: Cycling Lives in: Puyallup, WA Favorite thing about JoeFroyo:“I love the recovery aspects of JoeFroyo. It will be great to get my hands on individual bottles.”
This year-round cyclist was a two-time Washington State Senior Games Champ. Did we mention he and his wife of 35 years raise and show AKC Champion Cocker Spaniels? What a bunch of winners. Sheesh.
Sport: Running Lives in: Tacoma, WA Favorite thing about JoeFroyo:“JoeFroyo’s the most surprising sports drink ever – it’s good for you, goes down smooth and tastes really good.”
Check out these numbers (they’re Greg’s, BTW): 28:58.87 in the 10,000 m; 1:05:02 in the Half Marathon; 14:06.66 in the 5,000 m; 2:21:09 in the Marathon; 2017 Bloomsday 12K Top Washington Runner, 6th American and 18th overall. ’Nuff said (plus, we can’t exceed the character count).

Steve is a certified winner and champion for the cause of amateur athletes (just like us!). If he’s not training, you’ll find Steve competing in road races, criterium and time trials. And probably working, because that has to happen too. Did we mention he also coaches cycle racers? Check it out: matsoncoaching.com
Sport: Running Lives in: Tacoma, WA Favorite thing about JoeFroyo:“I really love how JoeFroyo fits in my schedule – not just as a recovery drink. It makes a great everyday snack too.”
This math and science teacher and 28-year sports veteran was the 1997 Southeastern Conference 10,000 m Champ. Nancy also took third in both the 2015 PNTF Master’s Club Cross Country Championships and its 2016 Regional Club Cross Country Championships. (We’re running out of room, but suffice to say, Nancy’s awesome.)
Going the Extra Mile
Our efforts have been repaid time and again with the gratitude of our athletes and the simple joy of watching our team members succeed. But something we didn’t expect was the ripple effect of giving: watching team members of the clubs we sponsor going above and beyond in supporting their own local communities.
Many of the team members volunteer to coach high school track and cross country, organize youth cycling races with no entry fees, and lead shoe drives to provide disadvantaged youth with the opportunity to experience the joy and community of athletics.
Passion is contagious. And we have seen this firsthand as Team JoeFroyo members pass their excitement, empathy, commitment and drive along to people who benefit so much from them.
