2015 SHARE A PAIR Has Begun!
Our goal this year is 300 pairs of shoes and socks for Kishwaukee Elementary School students! Since April 8th, all 300 students have been participating in our Fit in 60 activity program. Each and every student has worked hard to be active at least 60 minutes a day. On May 28th, we sized ALL 300 students for new gym shoes for the 2015-2016 school year!
Our official kickoff for Share a Pair 2015 is
July 9th, 5:30 PM at Lucha Cantina.
Please consider attending our kickoff and/or donating to our goal of collecting 300 pairs of shoes and socks for the hardworking kids of Kishwaukee Elementary School!
Annie’s Locker was recognized in the December 2014 issue of “Runner’s World” for our recent success with the SHARE A PAIR drive that provided more than 1,000 pairs of new gym shoes for local children […]
“Many times our students have needs that are not met at home, and we are always looking for donations. The shoes we received were not only brand new, but also VERY attractive for our little ones. It means so much to our staff, students and parents that there are organizations such as yourself that assist with the needs of our schools.”
“I appreciate my friend Anna for telling me about this organization. She runs with the Road Runners and encouraged me to run and start living healthy when I was going through a hard time. I was new to this area with no job, four kids and depressed. Running is giving my life back and I just wanna keep going. I did the Biggest Loser 5K – it was great time – 37 mins couldn’t believe it.”
“At the time, I didn’t know just how much that training program would mean to me and my family. During our camping trip, I would often reflect as we climbed hundreds of stairs in and out of canyons, that it wouldn’t have been possible if I hadn’t done the training program. And I wouldn’t have been able to do the training program without Annie’s Locker.”
“I really appreciate your support. The shoes are very comfortable and fit perfectly. I hope that all of your lives are blessed.”
