Helping Canadian Children Break the Cycle of Poverty

Posted on

It’s hard to believe, but 1.2 million children in Canada live below the poverty line. Shoe apparel and accessory company Brooks is helping to break this cycle; they’re teaming up with Running Room Canada to donate one pair of children’s shoes to Kidsfest Running and Reading Club – an after school program that improves children’s physical fitness and literacy.

Here’s how you can help!

How: Spend $150 on Brooks merchandise and help them support the Kidsfest Running and Reading Club

When: The entire month of April ’09

Where: Running Room locations across Canada.
