NYRR’s Virtual Sneaker Closet

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

NYRR’s 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. 

A big thank you to our friends at ASICS who matched all donations (up to $10,000 worth of sneakers) in 2013 and 2014 to help us get kids running!
