Project Love Sneaker

We all love promotions of any sort. I was informed of this earlier last week on my Facebook page by Jason on  an initiative by Running Lab’s founder Walter Tan since 2008 in Singapore, this is a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program. It has been 3rd year running and they are looking to collect shoes for the less fortunate who cannot afford to have proper shoes in their daily lives. 
So, in commemoration of Running Lab’s fourth (4th) branch in Kuala Lumpur (More specifically at Tropicana Mall Petaling Jaya), Project Love Sneaker will once again lead the way to lend a helping hand in providing the donated shoes to the Orang Asli/Indigenous Community of Malaysia at the end of this campaign.
“Regular runners are advised to replace their running shoes after clocking about 800km mileage in order to prevent from running injuries. Most of the time, these shoes are still in relatively good condition and it is too wasteful to dump them. Hence, instead of throwing them away, we want to provide an avenue for runners to give a second life to these used running shoes. The shoes can be donated to protect the feet and make a difference to the lives of the less fortunate people locally and abroad”, said Karen Chua, Marketing Manager, Outdoor Venture Pte Ltd.

I have checked with Running Lab - you can only use one coupon for one purchase and no combined coupon are to be used. Meaning, if you have 5 sneakers, you can still redeem it for RM100x5coupons. But you can only use ONE coupon per SHOE (excluding ASICS).
Go donate your sneakers for a good noble purpose! Remember ONLY CLEANED GOOD CONDITIONED Sneakers! Don't treat this as a "dumping" ground for your old salted fish! ;-)


  1. Great! Thanks for posting - will go and dig up my old salted fishes (just kidding). ;)

  2. Just put them out to dry so it's just salted. :)
