Subject: HS track coach looking for shoes
I'm a high school boys track coach that works with distance runners 800, 1600, &3200m. I coach in a rural and very poor school district at least half of my runners are running in shoes they bought at Wal-Mart. If anybody has some old trainers or racing flats that have a little life left in them and would like to donate them. I have some athletes that would appreciate them very much. I'm sorry I can't afford to pay you for them or even pay shipping but if you would still like to donate some shoes send me a pm and I will give you my mailing address. Thanks

I have been floored with the responses in my inbox. You guys are awesome!

Jillian I'm not the girls track coach but I do have an agreement with the girls coach that I will be responsible for all the distance runners workouts. Right now there isn't a big of need with the girls as boys but I could use some girls shoes too. Thanks!

I just wanted to thank everyone! I've received 4 boxes of shoes so far. I've wanted to pm everyone a personal thank you but one box didn't have a return address on it so I couldn't figure out who sent it. I wish you guys could see how happy you have made some of my kids on the track team. To give you an example of how much they appreciate the shoes the other day we went on a 5 mile trail run and the trails where a little wet. After we where done one of the boys I gave a pair of shoes to was sitting in the locker room with paper towels cleaning up his shoes to keep them looking good. Again Thank you!

A reply to get this back on the front page so more folks can see it and also to let you know that I finally got my boxes in the mail . Three more pairs of shoes should be coming your way by the end of the week.

Is this an ongoing need? Would you like BTers to continue to send shoes to you as they become available?
