Shoe Mountain

Donate your gently used athletic footware to SHOE MOUNTAIN. On Blue Nose Weekend, runners, walkers, volunteers and the public at large are invited to build a mountain of gently-used running shoes that will be distributed free of charge to Nova Scotians in need. Many people have several pairs of athletic footwear in their closets and we expect they will be very generous in helping us collect thousands of shoes.

You can’t miss it! SHOE MOUNTAIN will be in the Active Living EXPO at the World Trade & Convention Centre (WTCC) in downtown Halifax. Located on Level 1 and Level 2 with easy access off Argyle Street.
