Looking for Gently Used Running Shoes

posted Sep 6, 2015, 7:22 AM by LHS XCTrack

Hi Everyone!

I am collecting used running shoes for donation to the MORE Foundation, a non-profit group that funds farming programs in Africa. MORE is 100% funded from the sale of ‘gently used athletic shoes’. The shoes are sold in major cities in Africa - the vast majority of Africans cannot afford new shoes. MORE uses proceeds from the sale of the shoes to provide training and tools to the poorest rural farmers. Instead of decomposing in landfills, your used athletic shoes can be re-purposed to offset carbon from the atmosphere and regenerate farm land. Additional information is available at MOREFoundationGroup.org

How You Can Help: 
Set aside your used - but not abused - running shoes size 6-12. I cannot accept single shoes or heavily stained or ripped shoes. You can bring them to our home mee
ts – look for a large box near the fence by the finish. I can also collect them from your son or daughter at practice after school if that works.  I’m also happy to come and pick them up.

This is a small way we can share our love of running and also make a little difference globally.

I would appreciate your participation.  Thanks!
