Sports provides kids a way to strengthen their bodies, minds and character. Every child should be able to have access to sports shoes and safe sports equipment. Sports may be just the thing that helps to change a child’s life whether it is by improving their health, character or just giving them a fun hobby. However, too many kids cannot afford sports shoes, uniforms or equipment. In Oklahoma, one out of every four families lives in poverty. Those kids may never get to play sports without Cleats for Kids help.

Now, it is your turn to help. If you have any used sports shoes (tennis, cleats, etc), please drop them off in the Upper Division Student Center or in Bennett Athletic Center in the marked blue bins. 

Casady will be competing with Heritage Hall to see who can collect the most shoes before the Heritage Casady Basketball Game on January 27th. Bring your shoes for a great cause!
