This is the current statistic in the United States of kids who are living in poverty and shoes are one of the first signs of poverty. The simple gift of new athletic shoes can be a new lease on life for a child in need.
1 in 5 children
lives in poverty
Genesis Foundation for Fitness and Tennis (GFFT) is excited to announce our new program “Kicks for Kids.” We’ll donate 1,000 shoes each year to under-privileged youth locally.
YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Childhood is supposed to be a fun, non-stressful, carefree time. But kids can suffer excruciating stigma, bullying, and ridicule…all for lack of decent shoes.
We don’t give old or previously owned shoes to our kids. All of our kids receive BRAND NEW shoes measured exactly to their feet.
When kids get new athletic shoes, schools report an increase in physical activity, school attendance, and self confidence!
