A new and exciting component to this year’s 5K is a partnership with Shoes That Fit, an organization that tackles one of the most visible signs of poverty in America by giving kids in need new athletic shoes so they can attend school with dignity and joy. Through our partnership, Shoes That Fit will identify WV school children in need of new shoes. And, thanks to a matching gift, all donations up to $25,000 will be matched dollar-for-dollar!
