In an ongoing response to the coronavirus pandemic, Nike has announced it is donating more than 140,000 pieces of footwear, apparel, and equipment to show its gratitude to frontline healthcare workers across the globe.
The brand has revealed today that it has partnered with nonprofit Good360 to distribute the products globally, including its Air Zoom Pulse, to healthcare professionals who are working tirelessly to aid patients. The shoe was designed specifically for the needs of medical workers and debuted in December last year.
Donations in the U.S. will be administered by Good360 and will reach workers in the healthcare systems and hospitals in some of the most impacted states including Chicago, Los Angeles, Memphis, and New York City. An additional 2,500 pairs will be donated to hospitals across Europe including Berlin, Barcelona, London, Milan, Paris, and in Belgium.
Thus far, the Swoosh has committed more than $24.5 million to coronavirus relief.
