About the Event
We're all about running and we are also about community involvement and supporting youth!
Every year since 2002 New Basin Blues has sponsored the Cross Country Shoe Program to meet a need and provide running shoes for deserving high school runners. During this event student athletes are treated to a beautiful trail run with the club and a light breakfast served afterwards. After breakfast, the students are custom fitted into a pair of new running shoes. Their coaches tell us that some of these students have been running in hand-me-down shoes that are two sizes too small for them. You may be aware that the sport of running does not tend to receive the greatest amount of funding from our school dollars, so our club does its part to show youth that running can benefit them even into their adult years!
Your donation pays for new shoes and is tax-deductible. New Basin Blues is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Please give generously!
We always enjoy seeing our club members interact with these remarkable young runners. It would be our pleasure to have you attend our annual event.
