Donate old running shoes

Donate your old running shoes

We are calling on the generosity of the local running community to assist with donating your old running shoes to those less fortunate in a very remote area of Wasu Kabwum in Papua New Guinea (PNG).

Wasu - Kabwum Area

Wasu Kabwum is a rather remote area of PNG that is not accessible by road. As a result the various communities there (population probably getting close to 100k now) don’t have very good access to basic commodities. Life is a lot simpler. Access to the city is via a 20min plane trip (mostly unaffordable), 10 hour+ boat trips that are unreliable or a 3 day walk over the mountains.

Whilst the process of shipping the container of footwear is typically a very slow process (it might take 6 months for them to get it out of the wharf and then another couple months to get it on a barge to site), the locals really appreciate any footwear we can provide.

Share the joy of running with those less fortunate. Please ensure your shoes have laces and are in wearable condition.
