Kids Going For Gold
October 28, 2010 by Jamie Page
We are happy to announce that the Vivobarefoot sponsored Freedom’s Kids Run in West Virginia was a great success.
Over 400 kids showed up for the run on October 2nd and at least 180 were wearing Vivobarefoot Kids donated by us and Two River Treads
. Let us just say there were 180 very happy, healthy, kids and appreciative parents.
Vivobarefoot revolutionary, Ralph, who was at the run said “to see so many smiley faces in Vivo shoes really made the day. I only wish we had enough for every kid there.”
A huge thank you has to be said to Dr. Mark Cucuzella who’s efforts went above and beyond the call of duty. Not only was he the mastermind behind the kids run, he and his team organised a marathon, half marathon, 10k, and 5k race that very same day. He also owns Two River Treads who donated the shoes and is bastion of the barefoot movement and brand ambassador extraordinaire. Mark, we salute you!
Mark is also working with us to develop a kids running shoe due for release sometime next year.
