Red, White and Blue Weekend

0 Comments 19 May 2010

Give Your Sole is excited to be participating in this years Lake Elsinore Storm Baseball Red, White and Blue Memorial Day 5k/10k event.  The most popular minor league baseball team and Give Your Sole will be collecting moderately worn athletic shoes from participants attending this great event.  Shoe collections will begin at 7am and continue until 12pm located at the stadium (500 Diamond Drive, Lake Elsinore, Ca. 92530).  Enjoy the day at the park after the race in the beer garden listening to live music while the kids play in the kid zone.

All shoes that are collected will be donated to the Temecula Murrieta Rescue Mission.  Their vision is to create a Rescue Mission in the heart of the Southwest Riverside County in the Temecula Valley to serve the Least, the last, and the Lost.  In order to successfully achieve this vision a joint venture has been developed between Rancho Community Church and the Orange County Rescue Mission.  The 2009 County of Riverside Homeless Count and Survey findings revealed that 2,043 homeless individuals were unsheltered and 1,323 were sheltered for a point-in-time total homeless population of 3,366 individuals. Data from the count and surveys were used to calculate the number of persons who experienced homelessness over the course of the year which equaled 11,191.

Make it a family event this Memorial Day Weekend and head to the ballpark to help those less fortunate by donating your shoes.  What could be more Red, White and Blue than spending the holiday with family while supporting a great cause!

Thank you for your support.
