In recognition of frontline healthcare workers combating Covid-19 around the world, Nike, a leading designer and distributor of authentic athletic footwear, apparel and accessories, has announced to partner with nonprofit Good360 in the US and local organisations across Europe to donate more than 140,000 pieces of footwear, apparel and equipment globally.
 
The effort is led by messages of gratitude to healthcare professionals. From one athlete to another, Nike athletes recognise the physical and mental resilience of healthcare athletes.
 
These athletes joined with Nike to help announce the donation of 30,000 pairs of Nike Air Zoom Pulse to health systems and hospitals in Chicago, Los Angeles, Memphis and New York City, and within the Veterans Health Administration. An additional 2,500 pairs are being donated to hospitals across Europe, including Barcelona, Berlin, London, Milan, Paris and in Belgium.
 
Donations of the Air Zoom Pulse in the US will be administered by nonprofit Good360, a longtime Nike partner specialising in efficient distribution of product donations. This partnership ensures delivery of the footwear to health systems and hospitals when they are ready to receive and deliver them to their staff. Approximately 95,000 pairs of soccer socks offering mild compression will also be delivered through Good360 for healthcare workers in Los Angeles and New York City.
 
Nike has donated 1,100 Nike Sportswear kits — which including drawstring bag, water bottle, hat or headband and socks — to healthcare workers in New York City. Across Europe, Nike has donated nearly 4,000 pairs of shoes and more than 3,500 pieces of sweat-wicking Dri-FIT apparel to more than a dozen hospitals and shelters.
