keep fundraising with gofundme

As walkers and runners who participate in race events, we know how important shoes are. Shoes That Fit believe that no child should have to “sit out” of gym or extra-curricular sports because they don’t have a pair of shoes! Access to a healthy lifestyle and experiencing the joy that comes with exercise should be for every kid, and by starting a GoFundMe for Shoes That Fit, you are helping kids who don’t usually have shoes throughout the United States. We believe every kid should have the same proud feeling.

It’s easy to start raising money for Shoes That Fit, or any charity that you are passionate about, with our trusted fundraising sponsor, GoFundMe.

about shoes that fit

Shoes That Fit tackles one of the most visible signs of poverty by giving kids in need new athletic shoes to attend school with dignity and joy. Together, we can make a difference to kids in need. We can alleviate this simple burden. We can stop bullying by making sure no child is wearing shoes that are too old or smelly or too inappropriate.

Since our founding in 1992, we’ve provided over 2 million pairs of brand new shoes and other necessities to children across the United States.

Our vision is that, one day, every child in America who needs new shoes gets new shoes, allowing all children the opportunity to reach their highest potential.
