Adidas is offering a R 400 discount on new running shoes for every pair of old ones, of any brand, donated and will distribute the second-hand gear to disadvantaged runners through SCORE, a non-profit organisation specializing in community development in sport and recreation and the Two Oceans Marathon Initiative (TOMI).

The SCORE initiative works at training community members to become sport and life skills coaches in disadvantaged communities and so change lives through sport. Stefan Howells, director of SCORE, says they are delighted to receive running shoes from South Africans as these will go a long way towards assisting aspiring athletes in the disadvantaged communities. In South Africa the initiative reaches 40 disadvantaged communities and in Zambia it reaches 11 and in Namibia it reaches 14.

 The “Refresh Your Gear” campaign runs from 15 October to 16 November 2012 and the handover of the shoes are scheduled to take place during the first week of December. Adidas has partnered with running retailers throughout SA and feel this is a great opportunity for the public to start their running journey with adidas.
