Baldwin Bone & Joint To Host The 13th Annual “Many More Miles” Campaign

Giving New Life to Old Shoes for Those in Need

Daphne, AL (12/29/15) – You may have put a lot of miles on your old running shoes, but when you donate them to the “Many More Miles” campaign, your shoes will land on the feet of someone who really needs them.

For the 13th consecutive year, Baldwin Bone & Joint, P.C. will once again host this important community project, partnering with Mobile and Baldwin County YMCA branches, the Port City Pacers, USA Student Recreation Center and McCoy Outdoor Company to collect shoes for the homeless outreach programs of Wings of Life and Discovery Ministries. Response to the campaign has grown since its inception from 200 pairs donated in 2003 to just over 2700 pairs contributed in 2015. With the kickoff beginning early January each year, donations for 2016 are now being accepted with final shoe drop-offs received at the 2016 Azalea Trail Run on March 19.

Mobile and Baldwin County elementary students will also once again have the opportunity to collect shoes and earn money for their schools’ P.E. programs. Baldwin Bone & Joint will award cash prizes to the individual P.E. programs for the top three schools donating the most shoes.

So clean up those gently used athletic shoes, tie them together in pairs and drop them off at any of the following locations:

  • Baldwin Bone and Joint -1505 Daphne Avenue, Daphne
  • YMCA facilities in Mobile and Daphne
  • Dr. Glenn Glass, Daphne
  • McCoy Outdoor Company – 3498 Springhill Avenue, Mobile
  • The University of South Alabama Student Recreation Center
  • 2016 Azalea Trail Run Expo, Mobile Civic Center on March 19
