Share A Pair Charity is a legacy initiative to honour 2 dear friends who started this collection initiative in Johannesburg. These special athletes have subsequently immigrated but their passion for running, sport and giving back to the community remains and will be continued as a tribute to them to enable those who may not have the means, to enjoy the sport of running more comfortably.
Share A Pair collects and distributes all previously- loved running shoes (in fact any sport equipment that can be re-used!). Donations are distributed via the Sports Trust- an organisation that foresees the sustained growth of sporting development through talent identification and nurturing in alignment with the tenants of the National Sports Plan.
Running shoes/ gear in particular will be sent down to Kwa Zulu Natal to assist under privileged athletes to achieve their goal of finishing a Comrades Marathon.
The below links detail the distribution channels and methodology of the Sports Trust.
We invite all people who have enjoyed the gift of sport, to donate any used equipment to the Share A Pair cause. Donation boxes available at Pirates Sports Club, Greenside or contact 082 921 8145.
