–Dante Coletta, a junior at Paso Robles High School, held a Dunk Your Kicks fundraiser to raise money for pediatric cancer research on Saturday, Oct. 29. Dunk Your Kicks is a national fundraising initiative benefiting The Max Cure Foundation, a pediatric cancer charity. Coletta collected close to 100 pairs of gently used shoes.
Coletta is a Junior Board Member for the Max Cure Foundation. “I really enjoy being a part of the Max Cure Foundation,” he said, “It feels good to contribute to children with cancer and potentially find a cure.”
In addition to raising money to support children battling cancer, the shoe collection also helps keep unnecessary waste out of landfills and offers footwear to those in developing nations.
