Organization Information

Mission Statement

We are a teen inspired charity collecting new and gently-worn basketball shoes for underserved athletes. Shoes are an important part of basketball. Our vision is to provide every young athlete a chance to play basketball.

Description

Zak and Ty, high school basketball players, have been very fortunate and want to continue to "pay it forward". Our concept is simple, we take gently used and new shoes and provide them to athletes who are in need of basketball shoes. We have collected over 700 pairs of shoes in our first year of operation. We have partnered with Fairfax Athletes Stand Together to provided a platform to get the shoes to those in need by operating a "shoe store" like experience in Chantilly, VA. We need help to expand our outreach, collection, sponsorships and distribution.
