red arrowKenya Shoe Expedition
- "The Kenya Shoe Expedition began when a college freshman first saw a group of young runners training in southern Africa - without shoes. Adam Reiser, the young Rice University track star, realized that the used running shoes that most American runners simply throw in their closets after a few hundred miles of use could be put to some real good on the feet of these hard working young athletes who couldn’t find or afford shoes to train in. He started collecting shoes: first from his university track team, then from the local running community. The rest is history: the Kenya Shoe Expedition, launched in the fall of 1996, now collects shoes from thousands of high school & college track teams, running clubs, marathon expos, fun runs, and every other organized body of runners in existence throughout America."
