    The sport of running transformed your life. Now, you can ensure it transforms local students' lives too.

    The History of Kicks for Kids


    In 2021, Jeremy Susi and Mina Rasmussen introduced me to the Bassick High School Cross Country Team. 13 runners strong, these athletes signed up for a sport that most hadn't even heard of, mostly because it was a safe place to be after school.

    Bassick High School is in Bridgeport, CT, once the crown jewel of Fairfield County. Today 26% of the population in Bridgeport lives below the poverty line. As for the rest of the community, most hover right around it.

    Jeremy and Mina reached out to me last year because their athletes needed shoes. They were looking for "whatever we had." With the support of brands like Brooks, Feetures and Superfeet, we were able to put these athletes in new shoes. Last year, they competed in their own cross country meet, and this year, the athletes competed at the FCIACS.

    Because of Jeremy and Mina, Ridgefield Running Company kicked off the Kicks for Kids program in 2022. Every season, we send a packet to each coach in the FCIAC, with a certificate to give to an athlete to receive shoes and spikes from us for free. In 2023, we're expanding Kicks for Kids to serve many more student-athletes who need well-fitting, brand new sneakers.
