In the Spring of 2015, we started a fundraiser to raise money for athletic shoes for kids in our community who needed them. Our fundraiser took off and the support we received really brought it to our attention how important this cause is. In the summer of 2015, we created our non-profit organization Shoes 4 Kidz.
We are so grateful for the support of our community and the gracious donations that allow us to continue to make a difference in these young people's lives.
Our mission is to provide one good pair of athletic shoes for EVERY child who needs them. This is about much more than shoes, as we see it. We are living in a time when childhood obesity rates are high and MOVEMENT is at an all-time low. A proper pair of athletic shoes is not only important for the growing body, but for the mind as well. When exchanging a pair of holey, worn down shoes for a nice, new pair we are also exchanging shame and embarrassment for confidence and pride. So every kid can get in the game!
