1st Shoe Handover

WPCC Running sections Ted Vickery together with Kathy McQuaide of SSISA handing over several hundreds of pairs of recycled Running shoes to Sue Forge from WPA. WPA have kindly agreed to pass on the shoes to disadvantaged runners who often compete barefoot.

This initiative was launched after Landmarks 2015 when it was noticed that quite a few runners were running barefoot. Most of the shoes here were collected by Sports Science Institute of South Africa, but the collection of smaller sizes has started at some of the local Junior Schools.
