Here at NYRR our mission is to help and inspire people through running. Find out more about us.

 

NYRR’s Virtual Sneaker Closet

Donate today and help kids in our city's neediest schools stay on their feet!

New York Road Runners' free youth running programs and events reach over 200,000 children every year. While many of these kids have great enthusiasm and passion for the sport, it's not uncommon to see students running in ill-fitting sneakers, dress shoes, boots, and sandals. By participating in our sneaker drive, you can ensure that children in NYRR's Mighty Milers or Young Runners programs run in footwear that is not only safe, but also helps them onto the path of becoming a lifelong runner.

Watch the excitement as nearly 200 Mighty Milers and Young Runners received new shoes at the Holiday Sneaker Drive in December, and make a donation today to give more children shoes to Run for Life.

How to participate

Make a direct donation to the sneaker drive online. A $50 donation will cover the cost of sneakers for one child. All donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
