That’s where Dunk Your Kicks comes in!
We collect gently used sneakers and then those sneakers get sold as affordable footwear to people in developing nations around the world. For each pair of shoes collected, the Max Cure Foundation receives an average of $1 back. This money then goes towards helping families dealing with childhood cancer here at home.
Since 2011, Max Cure has helped more than 100 families in 17 States throughout the US. The money goes towards helping families with a child in active cancer treatment. The families are given gift cards for necessities like food and clothing. Additionally the Foundation provides back to school supplies for children in our program and their siblings, as well as an emergency fund used in the event the family experiences a financial emergency such as the inability to pay rent, electricity or vehicle repairs.
