The University of Oregon's student-athletes are viewed as role models in the community. We at the University of Oregon Athletic Department are very fortunate to have these young individuals not only participating in our 17 varsity teams but also volunteering their time to the community.
The goal for O Heroes is to create a collective organization that can positively impact Oregon, most specifically the Eugene/Springfield community. The student-athletes' efforts in this regard are our way of thanking the fans and the community for their continued support. The student-athletes are excited for the opportunity to raise funds in order to donate shoes for children in need within the Lane County area.
Our goal is to generate enough donations to equip 500 impoverished children with NEW shoes and socks, and the message of hope for the future. Our student-athletes will be participating in the distribution, and we can't do it without your help.
Keep your eyes open for some of our coaches who will leave their shoes behind in support of this campaign, and coach barefoot to be the voice for the voiceless. A small sacrifice for the children who need so much.
Thank you for your support. GO DUCKS!!
