16th Annual Shoe Campaign for the Homeless

Mobile County

Welcome to WKRG’s “Mark Your Calendar” for Friday, February 8th, 2019.  John Nodar welcomes Seneca Walden, CRNP with Baldwin Bone & Joint, to talk about the 16 years of giving back with the “MANY MORE MILES” shoe campaign for the homeless.  

You may have put a lot of miles on your old running shoes, but instead of throwing them out, consider donating them to someone who really needs them through the “Many More Miles” campaign. Baldwin Bone & Joint, P.C. is partnering with the Port City Pacers, Dr. Glenn Glass, The University of South Alabama Student Recreation Center, and local schools to collect shoes for the homeless outreach programs of “Wings of Life” and “Family Promise of Baldwin County.”

Since it’s inception in 2004, donations have grown from 200 pairs to over 2000 pairs contributed in 2018. Shoe donations will be accepted through Saturday, March 23rd, with the final shoe drop-off at the 2019 Azalea Trail Run.

The majority of donation to “Many More Miles” have come from local schools.   This year, students will be given the opportunity to collect shoes and earn money for their school’s P.E. programs. Baldwin Bone & Joint will award cash prizes to the top three schools in Mobile and Baldwin Counties who donate the most shoes. 

Those interested in participating are encouraged to 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 *** 

*** Dr. Glenn Glass’ Office – 1303 Main Street, Daphne *** 

*** The University of South Alabama Student Recreation Center *** 

*** Participating Schools in Mobile & Baldwin Counties *** 

*** Final Drop-off Opportunity: 2019 Azalea Trail Run Expo – Friday and Saturday, March 22-23, Mobile Civic Center ***
