Foot Locker and Leaders in the Sports World Join Forces

While a room full of men in dress suits and sneakers might evoke painful memories of awkward middle school dances, Foot Locker Foundation’s “On Our Feet” event is a long way from your middle school gym. The event brought together celebrity guests including Mickey Rourke, Dennis Rodman, Brandon Jacobs, Cobi Jones, Braylon Edwards and others dawning their best suits and flashiest sneakers to support the cause.

The Gala, held October 21st, at Gotham Hall in New York City organized by Foot Locker with support from other footwear companies – Nike, Adidas, Reebok, Converse and others – sought to raise money for the UNCF (United Negro College Fund), a scholarship program to offer deserving students the opportunity to reach their fullest potential.
