From athlete to athlete

Buy A Pair - Give A Pair: Treat yourself or a friend while supporting the Tegla Loroupe Peace Foundation all at once between the 4th-18th of December, 2013.

In cooperation with the worldclass athlete, UN peace ambassador and long time On-Athlete, Tegla Loroupe, On is donating high quality running Shoes to the Tegla Loroupe Peace Foundation. On will send a free pair of shoes to Kenya, Africa, for each shoe bought in our webshop from December 4th until December 18th. One shoe for the foundation can lay an alternative path for ambitious athletes in Kenya. It enables them to pursue an occupational career and within this a different perspective in life while supporting their families. Your new On shoes can therefore make a difference.
Participate and support the project “From athlete to athlete”.

“Peace through sports and development in Africa” - that’s the motto of the Peace Foundation run by multiple World Champion in half-marathon and marathon. Fighting against conflicts, poorness and injustice: a school for orphans and abandoned children in Africa, Child Sponsorships and programs for tribal warriors to leave behind their weapons - are just a few of Tegla's projects. The top athlete from Africa is convinced that sports are able to transport the feeling of togetherness and awareness about peace.

Since the founding of the On AG, the Tegla Loroupe Peace Foundation has received  our support. From December 4th until 18th, the peace foundation will benefit even more from each shoe sale through our webshop. Did you want to buy yourself a new running shoe or a sporty christmas present anyway? Do it now and help us support the Tegla Loroupe Peace Foundation along the way. How does it work? It is simple: Buy a pair of your favorite On’s on our webshop. The second pair for Tegla's Peace foundation will be sent over to Kenya. You don’t have to do anything more. We will report about the handing-over in Kenya as soon as the initiative is complete.

This project was made possible thanks to the generous support from our partners Kuehne + Nagel, Cargocare and Kids to Kids. A wave of gratitude to the aforementioned sponsors.

            Buy a pair - give a pair from 4.12 - 18.12.13
