El Paso - Hundreds of EPISD students are sporting new tennis shoes tonight.
Roberts Elementary took part in an incentive program put on by the Braden Aboud Foundation.
Students earned the new shoes through good deeds and keeping up with their wellness activities.
Gary Aboud started the foundation in the name of his son Braden...
"My son attended Lincoln Middle School and Lincoln has quite a few students who are very affluent and a lot of kids who have absolutely nothing and my son always said the only way you could tell the difference between the kids attending Lincoln School are by looking down at their shoes."
In all, Roberts Elementary students took home 662 new pairs of shoes.
