The Magic Shoe Foundation is a Newport Beach, CA non-profit organization that exists to provide shoes for various underprivileged high schools, elementary schools, Boys & Girls Clubs, and other local organizations. “Coach” Bill Sumner started the Magic Shoe Foundation in 1981. The purpose of this foundation is to collect lightly worn running shoes then clean, refurbish and distribute them to needy kids and adults in the local area so they can start or continue their running careers. The foundation has since been renamed the Cynthia Holcomb Magic Shoe Foundation — in memory of Cynthia Holcomb, a driving force behind Magic Shoe and dedicated volunteer.
