stride ahead has been collecting gently used shoes since 2004. Join the Manitoba Runners’ Association and receive a coupon to use with us when you donate your old shoes. Please, only drop off running shoes that still have some ‘life’ left in them.
Our current partner for receiving these shoes:
The Shoe Project – a partnership with Stride Ahead, the River Heights Fort Rouge Neighbourhood Resource Network & WRHA
- Gently used shoes from Stride Ahead support individuals with their desire for active living…such as some new comers to Winnipeg needing gear to participate in a free women’s only fitness class. We also support the growing feet of youth living in the Manitoba Housing complexes in our area so they can enjoy phys-ed class at school, participate in after school programs and sports teams. Shoes also go to the Oak Table which is a day shelter for a people suffering with housing challenges. These folks walk miles from the downtown shelters to Osborne Village where Oak Table is located.
