What made us Getz Movin

Some kids cannot afford quality sneakers that fit which makes it difficult to participate in physical activities, be active and confident. Getz Movin wants to change that!

In December of 2018 Kim, Julia, Matt and Ryan, volunteered at the Newark YMCA for a holiday party. They had a great time playing with the kids but were upset to learn these children lived in a homeless shelter. They reached out shortly after to find out how they could help.  They found out that many schools provide uniforms but kids still need their own sneakers for gym class and to participate in school sports.  We all know how quickly kids grow and that sneakers are expensive.   Having the correct size sneakers is important to support their growing bodies, encourage healthier lifestyles and to feel good about themselves.


This really resonated with Julia, Matt and Ryan who are all athletes. They could not imagine what it would be like to not have footwear that fit properly. This lead to many conversations and a few months later with the help of their Aunt Kimmie and mom Stefanie, Getz Movin was born! 


Getz Movin is a NJ based non-profit and a registered 501 (c) (3) recognized by the IRS. Getz Movin’s mission is simple, provide school aged kids and teens in need with new sneakers that fit. 

Let's Getz Movin

Our 2019 sneaker events were a huge success!    We provided 600 kids and teens in need with new sneakers in just 5 months. 


We have big plans for 2020 including the Newark YMCA Shelter in March and the Covenant House in April.  In 2020 we hope to provide 1,500 at risk youth with new sneakers so Getz Movin and donate today!
