We are at a crossroads. An unprecedented set of challenges – climate crisis, a global pandemic, racial injustice, and deep inequalities – have transformed our lives and created a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for change that we cannot overlook. We all breathe the same air. Help Support Eco Sneakers(.ORG) as we strive to make a difference in the world today and for our future.
MORE FUN, LESS WASTE
As one of the leading experts on Sports Sustainability, we feel it is our responsibility to lead the industry in event and sports sustainability practices. We aim to create a more sustainable future whilst inspiring people to #SaveWaterDon8UrShoes and lead more active lifestyles. This 5K (3.1 miles) is a run, trot, or walk which is open to all levels of physical fitness. The running style encouraged is fun and includes medals for all finishers.
Eco Sneakers is a Social Enterprise+ that provides effective and environmentally friendly opportunities with local and global impact. Eco Sneakers(.ORG) has been a force globally, too, in that we provide shoes for microenterprises and countries in need.
Recycle your shoes to someone who doesn’t have any!
Once you're done with your run/walk or trot, stop off at one of our participating drop-off locations and donate your USED, not Abused sneakers. Let someone else walk a mile in your shoes. www.ECOSNEAKERS.ORG
This is a unique event that allows participants to register to participate with their favorite NFL teams if they choose to. A portion of the proceeds will go to Big Brothers/Big Sisters on their behalf.
