At the annual sneaker party at St. Francis College on January 16, 2016, nearly 200 students who are part of NYRR youth running programs were treated to lunch, a fun raffle, a St. Francis basketball game, and were surprised with sneakers that fit them perfectly. We'd like to extend a special thank you to all the donors who contributed to this year's drive including running clubs like the Dashing Whippets and the November Project. Thanks to you and our partner ASICS, we were able to gift 188 students with new sneakers this month and our goal is to provide 1,500 more!
