THE RUNNING COMPANY STORES AND CROSSFIT TREEHOUSE COLLECT SNEAKERS TO SUPPORT PEDIATRIC CANCER RESEARCH
SPECIAL COLLECTIONS ON TRACK FRIDAY
NEW YORK, NY – The Max Cure Foundation, a national pediatric cancer foundation, is pleased to announce that The New Jersey Running Company and CrossFit TreeHouse in Kenilworth, NJ have chosen the pediatric cancer foundation to be the beneficiary of their TRACK FRIDAY events.
The Max Cure Foundation is a non profit children’s cancer charity whose mission is to raise money to fund the development of less toxic treatments for children and also to provide financial support to low-income and military families who have a child battling cancer.
Both organizations will be collecting sneakers for MCF’s DUNK YOUR KICKS campaign, a national campaign to collect new and gently used sneakers for a recycler who sells those sneakers to exporters/distributors as part of the Affordable Clothing Market. MCF receives $1 per pair for facilitating the collection.
Track Friday’s mission is to create a national charitable giving event held annually on the day after Thanksgiving to inspire philanthropy, health, and community. Track Friday participants can support any charity, raise any amount, and run or walk any distance on any track, at any time of the day on Track Friday. The Track Friday team will be hosting a flagship event at Middletown High School North in Middletown, NJ. They will be collecting sneakers at this location. But Track Friday is a virtual event as well, with participants even planning “meetups” at tracks anywhere! Visit the website for meet up locations.
Thanks to CrossFit TreeHouse and The New Jersey Running Company, Dunk Your Kicks is becoming a big part of the Track Friday Experience.
The New Jersey Running Company will donate $1 per pair of shoes donated on 11/28 through 11/30 at David Brearley High School in Kenilworth. The New Jersey Running Company is continuously collecting sneakers at the following locations:
