SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -

Valley doctors are launching a shoe drive to benefit the homeless in Boston.

To honor the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings, Novocur Pain Management Clinics are holding a running shoe drive for Back on My Feet Boston.

The organization helps Boston's homeless grow physically and spiritually through running.

Back on My Feet isn't trying to make runners out of Boston's homeless, rather to teach them to use running as inspiration to be self-sufficient. The organization's goal is to have members eventually get jobs and housing.

Novocur is asking for donations of new and gently worn running shoes between Thursday and April 26. Tax-deductible cash donations will also be accepted.

The clinic will send the shoes and cash to Back on My Feet Boston to be used by their members.

"Our team of doctors and clinical staff especially wants to honor the first responders, physicians, surgeons, nurses, and every good Samaritan that worked tirelessly and courageously to save so many lives that day," said Dr. Alex Bigham, CEO of Novocur. "We all have a long road to recovery ahead of us, and reaching out to the city of Boston with our love and support is the first step."
