Fleet Feet Sports Stamford is proud to send your used running shoes to the Max Cure Foundation's "Dunk Your Kicks" campaign! Through the Dunk Your Kicks campaign, your old sneakers can help make a difference in the lives of children battling cancer.
What if we told you, your old sneakers can be used to raise money for pediatric cancer causes? One of MCF’s main fundraising initiatives is Dunk Your Kicks, a national campaign which facilitates the collection of used sneakers by Rethink Nation which, in turn, sells the sneakers in emerging market countries as part of the Affordable Clothing Market.
MCF receives payment from Rethink Nation based on the quality of the sneakers collected. In addition to serving as a fundraising vehicle for MCF, Dunk Your Kicks helps the environment by keeping the sneakers out of landfills while, at the same time, creates tens of thousands of jobs globally and reduces the risk of disease in those living in developing countries who go barefoot. Dunk Your Kicks gives a 2nd and even a 3rd life to the sneakers that would otherwise end up, unused, in closets and ultimately thrown out.
