Join FILA in World Walk on October 25th!

October 7, 2008 08:00 AM

There are 300 million children who woke up this morning without shoes

Samaritan's Feet is a humanitarian relief organization dedicated to putting shoes on kid’s feet all around the world. Samaritan’s Feet works in 42 countries, including here in the US. Our goal is to provide-10 million pairs of shoes for 10 million impoverished people in 10 years. Samaritan’s Feet has partnered with FILA as Samaritan’s Feet Founder, Manny Ohonme, provides a voice for these children.

Manny will walk 300 miles in his bare feet from Charlotte to Atlanta starting on October 11th at the Bass Pro Shops in Concord Mills. He will finish on October 25th at the Bass Pro Shops in Lawrenceville, Ga. As Manny is wrapping up his walk from Charlotte to Atlanta, Samaritan’s Feet will ask the entire World to walk one mile on Saturday, October 25th at 12:00pm Eastern. The goal is to raise $500,000 and 100,000 pairs of shoes during his 300 mile journey. Will you join us on this world-wide movement?
