Club seeks worn running shoes CSUMB students plan donation to nonprofit

Posted on Dec 04, 2006 A group of students at California State University, Monterey Bay, is collecting sneakers to donate to impoverished runners around the world. The One World Running Club started at CSUMB in September under the leadership of Katie Spotz, who is studying at CSUMB as part of the National Student Exchange program. Spotz's home campus is Kent State University in Ohio. Spotz, 19, said she read about One World Running, the Colorado-based nonprofit that collects shoes for Third World countries, in "Runner's World" magazine. She said she figured she could do something similar at CSUMB.
