One World Running

The Green Girl was pleased to receive an email from her favorite local running store, Runner's High, announcing they are an official Drop-Off Location for One World Running.

For those of you who are not familiar with this organization, One World Running was formerly "Shoes For Africa." One World Running is an international program promoting an awareness of health, fitness and nutrition by providing running shoes to those in need in the United States and around the world.

Some of the shoes are new; many are "near-new," which are the ones sent overseas. The shoes that are beat up and not suitable for shipment are sent to Nike in Beaverton, Ore., through Boulder's Eco-Cycle program, to be ground up and made into running tracks and playgrounds through the Reuse-a-Shoe program.

Please keep One World Running in mind the next time you replace your running shoes.
