Dashing Whippets Sneaker Drive 2015

THE STORY:

Our annual Sneaker Drive for kids participating NYRR’s Youth Programs is now in it’s fifth year! Since 2011 we have raised a total of over $10,000 to purchase new running shoes for Mighty Milers and Young Runners.


Most of the kids that participate in these programs are from underserved schools and unfortunately many do not own running shoes. Instead they try to run in basketball boots or Timberlands. The gift of a pair of proper shoes, fit for running, makes a greater difference than you might expect. Not only do the kids tend to become faster and more able runners, but it encourages them to stay with the programs and become healthier and more productive students.

We are asking members of the Whippets and our extended family of runners to consider making a gift this holiday season. Giving back to the young runners in our community is something that I hope we can all get behind. All monies donated will go directly to NYRR Youth Programs who buy appropriate sneakers at a discounted rate and then distribute them to kids from various NYC public schools in January 2016.
