Daphne, AL (December 9, 2019) – Local runners and exercise enthusiasts may have put a lot of miles on old running shoes, but when they are donated to the “Many More Miles” campaign, those shoes will come to life again as they land on the feet of someone who really needs them.
For the 17th consecutive year, Baldwin Bone & Joint, P.C. will once again host this important community project, partnering with the Port City Pacers, Dr. Glenn Glass, The University of South Alabama Student Recreation Center, and Mobile and Baldwin County schools to collect shoes for the homeless outreach programs of Wings of Life and Family Promise of Baldwin County.
Response to the campaign has grown since its inception from 200 pairs donated in 2004 to a record-breaking 2,728 pairs contributed in 2019.
Mobile and Baldwin County students will once again be rewarded for collecting the highest number of shoes with money for their schools’ new P.E. equipment. Baldwin Bone & Joint will award cash prizes of $500, $300 and $200 to the top three schools in Mobile and Baldwin Counties who donate the most shoes. Note of interest: Over the years, shoes donated by local schools provides the largest collective donation to this important campaign.
Those interested in participating are encouraged to clean up those gently used athletic shoes and tie them together in pairs before dropping them off at any of the following locations:
