In February, the Muaythai Project returned to Thailand. This time, to hand deliver a collection of slightly worn sneakers to needy children and teens at Sangmorakot Gym in Bangkok. The Muaythai Project launched its Second Chance Sneakers Program in September of 2010. Through the Program, members of participating Muaythai gyms were able to donate slightly worn sneakers which were then collected and distributed to those in need in Thailand.
Often times, children in Thailand must run in sneakers with holes in them, or run in sneakers that just don’t fit. This program was designed to supply those children with good quality, second hand sneakers. Aside from a few scuff marks, no major issues were found with any of the donated sneakers. The program went over very well.
Thank you to all of our participating gyms and individuals. Your support and belief in us was overwhelming.
