Lazy Sunday sneaker project helps more rangitahi join in sport

From Afternoons, 1:26 pm on 27 October 2022

Thanks to the efforts of a young Queen Margaret College student, more children are getting the right footwear so they can take part in sports. 

Maia Mariner started Lazy Sneakers when she was just 12, to get people to donate their unwanted sports shoes to give to others who couldn't afford them.

She is now going to share her story at the IWG World Conference on Women and Sport in Auckland. Maia speaks to Jesse about her project and addressing some of the most prestigious women in sport!
