SNEAKERS AND THE CITY: Twenty 3-by-5-foot running shoe statues will be on the sidewalks of Manhattan beginning today, coinciding with 2007 Blue Planet Run. Heatherette, the New York Giants, Courteney Cox, Rosie O'Donnell and Rachael Ray, among others, designed sneakers on behalf of one of the 20 international Blue Planet Run athletes. They are running a combined 15,000 miles through 16 countries in less than 100 days to raise money and awareness for safe drinking water projects around the world to reflect the runners' commitment to this global cause. The giant sneakers will be displayed around New York, from Times Square to the New York Stock Exchange to Chelsea Piers.
