The sun does not forget a village just because it is too small - African proverb

What to do with your old running shoes

Running should be an accessible sport around the world but, for some, owning a pair of running shoes is unaffordable. We've identified a few running events where children from rural villages turn up for a 5km run in flip-flops and other ill suited footwear. Help us kit them out with new and used running shoes.
