BIG thank you to ASICS for this very generous donation of 400 brand new kids running shoes for Healthy Lifestyle for Youth’s Shoes that Inspire program!!
What is Shoes that Inspire?
Shoes that Inspire is an after-school running program that provides elementary school children from underserved communities new running gear and the chance to exercise for at least 30 minutes everyday.
At the end of the 6-8 week program, kids participate in a celebratory 5K race where they receive certificates, medals, and prizes to commemorate their progress and hard work.
Students leave our program not only improving their physical fitness but also cultivating their self-confidence, perseverance and discipline—skills necessary for them to triumph over future life obstacles.
We are currently looking for schools to collaborate with to further our impact. If you or anyone you know is interested in implementing a Shoes that Inspire chapter at a school or community center, please contact me!
