“There are no words to express our gratitude, or the looks on these kids’ faces when they are handed their brand new pair of shoes.”

Myriah Volk and her team from Shoes 4 Kidz have come out to our ‪#‎MightyMilers‬ practice the last 3 weeks to make sure that every single kid on the team has a good pair of running shoes that fits them! There are no words to express our gratitude, or the looks on these kids’ faces when they are handed their brand new pair of shoes. She even tried her best to get every child the color and style they wanted. Myriah Volk, you are more than a shoe fairy….the work you are doing is amazing and making a huge impact on our community! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!!! –Matrix Parent Network & Resource Center

“Shoes 4 Kidz: lifesaver for a coach, and dream-saver for my runners.”

I am a middle school cross country coach, and had a student who was running in an old beat up pair of Ked’s. She could not afford to replace her old running shoes, so she was making do. I texted Myriah @ Shoes 4 Kidz, who had a beautiful pair of brand new Nikes at my school office by the next day.  Talk about seeing a kid’s face light up. She ran her first 2 mile race in them on Friday, and said they were perfect. -Catherine Capriola Twin Hills Charter

“Thank you so much for coming and delivering those beautiful shoes to our students!”

One of my students, whom I think has never had a new pair before, said that he was never taking them off. I had to keep him from running up the walls, literally, for the rest of the day. Thank you for this amazing gift that you and your organization and providing to kids. It warms my heart!’ Amy, Kindergarten Teacher Cinnabar Elementary, Petaluma

“Thank you Myriah, aka the Shoe Fairy, for quickly responding to a student in need of shoes.”

It was clear that the student had been given ‘hand me downs’ that were way too big, and prior to that shoes that were hurting him. You swooped in to save the day and provided him with a brand new pair of shoes right out of the box.  His face brightened and the smile was contagious.  “I can run fast now,” he said.  Later in the day I saw him jumping rope and running on the playground.  “Look at me” he exclaimed! I can’t thank you enough for your quick response and continued effort to outfit those in need with athletic shoes.  You truly are the “shoe fairy!” – Linda Irving Superintendent, Sebastopol Union Principal & Park Side Elementary
