Event Description

The race was started in 2011 by a local firefighter, Andy Nestor to provide free athletic shoes to local students in need.  The success of the program was overwhelming.  River City Runners and Walkers Club coordinate with local school nurses to identify children in need of quality athletic shoes but financially unable to get the shoes. The program is 100% free.

Our mission is to motivate children to get outside and move, maybe join a sports team or just run and play.  We hope to change the image of West Virginia from an unhealthy, sedentary lifestyle to an active, healthy culture starting with our future - the children of WV and surrounding areas. 

To date RCRW have given out hundreds of athletic shoes since 2011. 

Help us continue this amazing program by supporting the K4K night race this year!
