Clean out your closet while you support Soles4Soles!  If you plan on coming to the Grandma's Marathon, Essentia Fitness & Health Expo on Thursday, June 16 or Friday, June 17 at the DECC, bring a pair or several to donate.

During the 2011 Essentia Health Fitness & Health Expo, Grandma’s Marathon is partnering with Toyota, Advantage Emblem, Tortoise & Hare Footwear and Duluth Running Company to help change the world, one pair of shoes at a time through Soles4Souls. Throughout the marathon weekend they will be collecting new and gently used athletic shoes to donate to those in need, filling  cars with shoes by having two vehicles at the Essentia Health Fitness & Health Expo that will be the collecting space for the weekend. Come on down with your shoes and help us fill these cars!

The first 1,000 people who donate shoes to this cause will receive a free water bottle, courtesy of our presenting sponsor, Toyota. In addition to this wonderful offer, every person who donates a pair of shoes during Grandma’s Marathon weekend will receive a generous coupon of 10% off a purchase of $50 or more at the Official Grandma’s Marathon Merchandise Store. The coupon can be used during the Essentia Health Fitness & Health Expo on Thursday, June 16 and Friday, June 17, as well as the Official Merchandise Tent in Canal Park throughout the entire marathon weekend.
