Gaylord-Hansen Shoe Event, October 6th

Click image for foundation link. click link for promotional video


The Gaylord-Hansen Shoes Foundation will give every child at Santa Margarita and North Terrace a new pair of shoes. This event will take place on October 6th, 2017 at both Santa Margarita and North Terrace campuses.  Listed below is a short description of their mission and a link to their website. There is an amazing video on their website of last year’s event at MCAS Miramar.

Gaylord-Hansen Shoes Mission

Our Mission is to provide San Diego school kids of the enlisted military, an opportunity to enjoy the fun and excitement of getting a brand new pair of shoes, and feeling the exhilaration of running faster, jumping higher, & striding towards a bright future! Gaylord-Hansen Shoes believes in the importance of putting your best foot forward. That can be challenging with ill fitted shoes. Children wear their shoes for over 30 hours a week. If their shoes are uncomfortable, or they are not the right fit because they have outgrown them, this could definitely affect a child’s mood, causing them to lose focus. Studies show that kids do better in school if they are physically active. If a child’s shoes restrict their natural movement patterns, he or she is less likely to want to run, jump and play, which could have a damaging effect on their education. We believe the simple gift of athletic shoes can be a new lease on life for a child.
