One of the cornerstones of the Sports Boosters of Maryland programs is Shoes for Grades. This program has provided hard-working students with athletic shoes for over 12 years.

We are proud to have funded numerous athletic organizations throughout the greater Baltimore area and continue to fund youth athletic programs.
We work in numerous Baltimore County, Baltimore City, Howard County and Carroll County schools and challenge students to raise their grade average by a full point.

Students who rise to the challenge receive gift certificates to Holabird Sports to purchase athletic shoes or equipment of their choosing. By providing a small incentive to students, we have helped to transform academic careers and reward hard work with something that students need to succeed on the playing field.
