Inaugural 13.1 Marathon New York April 3rd, 2010

Give Your Sole is excited to announce they will be attending the 13.1 Marathon Inaugural New York race, another great event put on by US Road Sports and Entertainment Group.  On April 3rd, 2010 runners will take to the streets of New York starting in historic Flushing Meadows Park in front of Arthur Ashe stadium and finishing in the shadow of the Unisphere. Give Your Sole will be collecting all your moderately worn tennis shoes, sneakers and athletic shoes of any kind at the packet pick up locations on Thursday April 1st and Friday April 2nd prior to race day.  Give Your Sole will be collecting shoes on race day as well at their booth (located near the Team World Vision booth) near the finish line. For those who want to donate the shoes right off their feet, FREE Give Your Sole flip flops (while supplies last) will be provided so you won’t go home barefoot.

All the shoes collected at this particular event will be donated to the New York Rescue Mission to help people in need. New York City Rescue Mission was the first homeless shelter in NYC to open its doors every day to alcoholics and the underserving poor for its soup kitchen meals and Christian gospel services. Since 1872, thanks to donations and volunteering, this non-profit ministry has helped alleviate homelessness, hunger and addiction by providing emergency services such as food, clothing, shelter, counseling and spiritual hope.

This event is going to be one you’ll remember.  By combining our passion for running and helping those in need we are excited to work together with the people of New York in being able to give back to such an incredible city in hopes of making life a little bit easier for those on the streets.  Make sure to get signed up for this inaugural race and remember to bring your shoes! See you soon New York!
