Would you still run if you didn’t have shoes?  

Register for our Barefoot 5K for Zimbabwe to help send our team to Africa this summer. We will be providing shoes, food and education to children in an orphanage as well as children in schools located in poverty stricken rural areas of the country. We work with many children who walk up to ten miles to school every day – many of them do not have shoes of their own.


It is up to you whether or not you wear shoes on the Barefoot 5K for Zimbabwe!  But we do ask, if you have running shoes that look good but are no longer functional for running, and you don’t know what to do with them, you can drop them off at the run and we will personally deliver the shoes to people who will wear them with pride in Zimbabwe. We learned from personal experience that the kids LOVE our running shoes!
