Access + Inclusion Matter

We’ve launched an effort with our athletes and non-profit partners to achieve greater access, representation, and equality to the outdoors and sports.

Partnerships with Purpose

We are partnering with our CLIF® athletes to donate our time and resources to support our non-profit partners in making the spaces where we live and play more accessible and inclusive.

We believe people should feel proud to be who they are, wherever they are
— on the court, trail, field, mat, or elsewhere.
