How it works
a $75 donation = 1 new pair of shoes
Kids for the shoes will be nominated by teachers/coaches at their schools. From the nominations a committee will select the recipients of the shoes by July 31st and finally all shoes will be given out to kids by mid-August 2019 or as kids return to school in the fall.
FUNDS TO BE RAISED BY JUNE 22ND, 2019
Every little bit helps move this vision and project forward to help families and kids in our community. As an athlete or a parent, we know that something simple like having new athletic shoes is something we all get excited about wearing and can truly make difference in these kids’ lives. This encourages more play for kids, whether in gym class, a sport, or just out the front door.
Sarah Boyle, professional athlete partnered with Knuth Family Foundation to form “Kicks for Kids.”
As a professional athlete and former collegiate athlete, Sarah Boyle considered herself blessed to always have the new running shoes she needed for training. She didn’t have to wonder when she would get another pair or how she would afford them.
Sarah spent a number of years coaching at the collegiate level and it was there that her eyes were re-opened to the number of kids who come from families that were unable to afford a new quality pair of shoes for their son/daughter when they needed them. She personally witnessed a high school coach purchase a pair of shoes for an athlete because their family could not afford them.
The desire to give back to families in the community, along with her life experience, sparked the effort to make Kicks for Kids come to life.
Partnering with Knuth Family Foundation, together we hope to provide local kids without means to purchase new shoes, receive new kicks!
