With the development of their innovative Night Runner™ product, Doug Storer and his fiancé Renata, both avid runners, are on a mission to make pre-dawn and post-dusk running (on sidewalks, roads or trails) safer for the overwhelming percentage of runners who run during those times of day. The couple has launched a Kickstarter campaign to secure funding to help continue their mission to bring the Night Runner™ to market. The Kickstarter campaign can be accessed via the following link: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1690988499/night-runner-led-shoe-lights
The Kickstarter campaign has a modest goal of securing $38k by June 10th 2013 to help fund the development of additional prototypes and the initial tooling process for manufacturing the finished product. The couple is calling on the running community to contribute to the Kickstarter campaign to help make the product a reality. As is standard with all Kickstarter campaigns, contributors receive a “thank you” ranging from Night Runner branded sport phone holders to tech shirts to the product itself (for contributors at the $50+ level).
