The Max Cure Foundation is excited to announce it has become the official beneficiary of the Ultimate Sneaker Expo in Syosset, NY on April 26, 2014, and will be collecting new and used sneakers to raise money for pediatric cancer research and to assist families battling the disease in their children. Trade and sell your prized collections and Dunk Your Kicks at Long Island’s largest sneaker and lifestyle apparel show featuring top vendors, brands, collectors and retailers while supporting pediatric cancer causes.
The Ultimate Sneaker Expo event takes place at Ultimate 575, a sports complex boasting over 20,000 Square Feet of Space with 200+ Exclusive vendors and 4000+ attendees all under one roof. In addition to exclusive vendors and sneaker trading there will be a wide array of giveaways, courtesy of the VIP sponsors. The event will also feature an all-star entertainment roster including DJ Bobby Trends (Hot 97), Ted Smooth, DJ Fatfingaz and Marco Glorious (Wendy Williams Show) among others.
Event Partners include DJ Clark Kent, Sharad & Manu of SM Event Group, and Michael Siegal of Ultimate 575 who collectively share a passion for sneakers and events. The Max Cure Foundation was introduced to the Ultimate Sneaker Expo by way of Dunk Your Kicks Ambassador and Max Cure Chair, Jen Boudin, who simply had an idea, took a shot, and a philanthropic relationship was born.
A substantial portion of the proceeds from the sale of the sneakers will be used by Max Cure Foundation to help underwrite an immune T Cell laboratory at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center to treat children and young adults that had not responded to standard treatments. Along with it Roar Beyond Barriers program to financially support low income and military families whose children have cancer.
You can stop by one of the supporting retailers between March 1st and April 25th and drop off your Kicks before the show, or Dunk Your Kicks at the show and you will skip the line! Make sure to visit the Max Cure booth and say “hi” to our team of youth volunteers.
