As you know each month, we support a different cause as a gym!
This August, we are excited to partner with Soles4Souls to help provide shoes to people who need them!
Every 10 check-in helps provide a pair of shoes to someone in need. Member or non-member can check-in from anywhere and it counts! The hashtag this month is #giveshoes.
Soles4Souls creates sustainable jobs and is committed to fighting poverty through the collection and distribution of shoes and clothing around the world. Your check-ins will be helping to ship new and gently-worn shoes to help individuals start and sustain small businesses to lift themselves out of poverty. Donated shoes are a viable resource to help local entrepreneurs provide crucial necessities for their families in developing nations.
If you want to learn more about Soles4Souls, you can check them out at www.soles4souls.org.
Thanks for checking in to help “wear out” poverty!
