Soles4Souls Collection!

Collecting for Soles for Souls: 2011
It's that time of year again, folks!
We are collecting for Souls4Souls. 
What a great feeling to be able to do something positive!

Last year, we collected over 860 pairs of shoes! This year, we hope to have the same success!

We set up the collection boxes at the local high school, my favorite running store, Fleet Feet, and Murdoch Shoes, my favorite place to buy Uggs!

The collection will culminate at the local Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot Race, The Ashenfelter Classic. It's such a great way to spend Thanksgiving: run in your local turkey trot race, collect some shoes for Soles4Souls, give thanks and enjoy some cranberry mold, potatoes (good carbs!) and a little turkey!

Soles4Souls is a Nashville based charity that collects and distributes shoes to people in need, world-wide. In fact, they have distributed shoes to over 127 countries. Can you believe that over 300,000,00 million children world-wide live without owning a pair of shoes?
You know, as amateur athletes - especially endurance runners - we blow through a couple of pairs of shoes every year. Well, don't throw them out, host a Soles4Souls collection at your next local race - you will be protecting so many people, especially  children, from nasty foot borne diseases. So clean out your closets and
