For more than 12 years, the Finish Line Foundation has partnered with Special Olympics to provide funding, volunteers and thousands of pairs of sneakers.
Our signature program, Fit Forward, combines our employees' expertise with our access to premium footwear to provide athletes with an inclusive shoe fitting experience. The sneakers act as an incentive to encourage athletes to complete various Healthy Athletes disciplines creating an overall wellness check from head to toe. To date over 15,000 shoes have been put on our athletes feet around the country. The foundation has also donated over 12 million dollars to Special Olympics to date.
The Finish Line Foundation has been honored with the Golisano Health Leadership Award, Serve Indiana’s Excellence in Volunteerism and a finalist for ESPN’s Sports Humanitarian Award for improving health of people with intellectual disabilities.
