In 2011, the Orange Bowl launched Kicks for Kids, a program designed to provide South Florida’s youth the opportunity to participate in and reap the rewards of sports and exercise by receiving a pair of good athletic shoes.  Together, the Orange Bowl and the South Florida community have been able to provide over 4,000 kids with a pair of new or moderately used athletic shoes. This year we are preparing to donate even more.
Kicks for Kids is supported by Baptist Health South Florida. Kicks-for-Kids
 Other businesses and individuals are also encouraged to participate. If you or your business would like to collect or provide shoes, or make a monetary donation to the program, please contact Erica Wilkerson at


A good pair of sneakers is all it takes!
