Community Day with Boys Town Nevada and the UFC

Community Day with Boys Town Nevada and the UFC

On July 3, Zappos joined Boys Town Nevada and the UFC for the community day that kicked off the UFC’s International Fight Week—an annual event that included a two-day fan expo and culminated in UFC 162. Volunteers helped 100 at-risk boys and girls select a new pair of Nike, Converse, adidas, Vans, DC, or Stride Rite shoes from Zappos.com.

Once their shoes were chosen, the kids and their families enjoyed a provided lunch at the recently opened The Learning Village in downtown Las Vegas. There was even a Sno Cone truck on hand to provide some relief from 115-degree heat!

UFC fighters Phil Davis, Luke Rockhold, Forrest Griffin, Benson Henderson, Carlos Condit, Urijah Faber, Joseph Benavidez and Daniel Cormier were on hand to answer questions, take pictures and sign autographs.

Despite going a few rounds with the heat, it’s safe to say this bout resulted in a huge win for the kids!

The Iggy Pop Vans 106’s  black-on-black exterior evokes Iggy’s style from his early days with the Stooges circa 1968-1970. Brash, punk rock yet utterly timeless.
