Team NB sends shoes & gratitude to medical workers.
New Balance is teaming up with a group of our athletes, including Milos Raonic, Sydney McLaughlin, Dejounte Murray, Rose Lavelle, Rob Pannell, Trayvon Bromell, Joey Gallo and Zdeno Chara, to collectively donate more than $1M worth of footwear to frontline medical workers. In addition to wanting frontline workers to have comfortable and supportive footwear, new guidelines recommend that those working in medical institutions change shoes and clothing before leaving their place of work.
“As a humanity and community, we are being tested, but our heroes are the medical workers on the front lines,” says Milos Raonic, Team New Balance tennis athlete. “I am grateful for the ability to partner with my family at New Balance to show my gratitude to these heroes.”
The joint donation will deliver more than 13,000 pairs to thank the healthcare community doing the hard work during this pandemic.
