Charity Highlight

We love chucking paint and making people smile, but we also think it is important to give back. As a for profit company, we are excited we have the opportunity to partner with charities and help shine a light on their extraordinary work within society.

We are thrilled to be working with Shoes on Students.


“Shoes on Students” was started in 2005 by Fleet Feet Sports. As runners, residents and business owners in one of the poorest cities in America, we saw first hand the inadequate footwear that the young athletes of Western New York wore in their meets. Athletic dreams, performance goals, ambitions all impacted by the inability of families to provide the right shoes for their children.Coaches were buying shoes for their teams out of their own pockets. In 2005, we made the decision that we needed to do more for our community.

In the past eight years, the proceeds from the Fleet Feet 15K-Run into Buffalo and other events have allowed SOS to provide 1,500 pairs of shoes across our community. That is an average of over 200 children influenced each year. Our goal is to make that number grow – 500, 1,000 or more each year. When we see the smiles of young runners competing in shoes that are right for them, when they finish their race and hug us at the finish line, we know that SOS is having the positive influence on our community that we work so hard to achieve.

WOW! I cannot wait until The Color Run comes back to my city. It was seriously the best day. My friends and I had a blast.
My favorite part was the party at the finish line that had super cool photo ops, music, and a beach area with cool vibes!
The Tropicolor zone had big inflatable palm trees! My friends and I had so much fun this year. We love TCR!
The new Tropicolor tour is even better than last year! They had a sandy beach area at the end with huge inflatable beach balls. So fun.
The Color Run Tropicolor Tour is one of the funnest things my family and I have ever done. Very family friendly and super tropical.
