This November, the JD Youth Foundation begins its annual in-store and online campaign benefiting Special Olympics.
Through our program, Fit Forward, we provide Special Olympics athletes with thousands of pairs of properly fitted sneakers.
In order to receive the sneakers, athletes complete vision, dental and other health checks. The donations raised this holiday season provide free health screenings, coaches, mentors, and implementation of supported Unified Champion schools.
There are several methods you can use to donate online.
Each year, JD Sports volunteers support Special Olympics athletes with high fives, endless cheering and new sneakers.
“It was an incredible experience to encourage so many happy smiles from athletes,” said Carlos Ortiz, JD Sports area manager.
