We are excited to announce the iRun4Life Gives Back Program which will support a school in extreme need of new exercise equipment. Our goal is to give children the opportunity to be healthy and strong, and achieve our mission to help combat childhood obesity.
In the spring of 2018, runners from various iRun4Life affiliated elementary schools participated in special fitness based fundraising activities These included color runs, music based relay races, obstacle courses and endurance running. The runners raised $6,000 and was used to purchase new exercise equipment for Thomas Mifflin and Edward Gideon schools which was delivered at a school assembly in September, 2018. The children at Mifflin and Gideon are very excited to use this new equipment during physical education class and recess.
Our first Gives Back Program recipients in 2017 were Bayard Taylor Elementary and Roosevelt Elementary School in North Philadelphia. These schools needed new exercise and team building equipment for the children to use during physical education class.
iRun4Life and our runners successfully raised over $7,500, and all the new exercise equipment was delivered to the children at Bayard Taylor in September and Roosevelt Elementary in October 2017 for the start of the new school year. We are incredibly proud of our runners and thank them and their families for their support.
If you know of an elementary school in need, please email information@iRun4Life.com

Join iRun4Life as we collect gently used shoes and recycle them for reuse! This is a great fundraiser.
Learn how to set this up at https://www.communityrecycling.biz/programs/shoebox-recycling.
Shoebox Recycling gives iRun4Life boxes to fill up with gently worn adult and children's sneakers, cleats, flats, high heels, dress shoes, and dress boots. Schools have the opportunity to place recycle boxes in their schools to collect the shoes. Once the boxes are filled, Federal Express picks them up and Community Recycling delivers the shoes to communities in need around the world. The schools receive $0.50/lb for the shoes and all the money goes right back to the school's running program. This is our way of sharing our love of exercise with other children and families around the globe. If your school is interested in participating in ShoeBox Recycling, please contact Judy Wexler at firstname.lastname@example.org .
This is a WIN-WIN for everyone!

In the meantime, we want to address any outstanding issues with our active recyclers. Please contact us at ShoeBox@communityrecycling.biz with your questions, and we will do our best to respond as promptly as possible.
