A local organization dedicated to helping inner city youth succeed is calling on Winnipeggers for a helping hand.

West Broadway Youth Outreach (WBYO) is seeking donations of new or gently used running shoes for youth planning to participate in the 4th annual 5ish Fun Run.

Unfortunately, not all of the kids who use the facilities services have good sneakers to use to train for and run in the Fun Run.

Currently WBYO is looking for running shoes of all sizes and colours.

Donations can be dropped off at any Running Room location or at West Broadway Youth Outreach at 222 Furby Street.

The deadline to drop of shoes is Saturday May 24th.
