Close to 300,000 children in need that will receive new shoes thanks to TOMS and all the people who pledged “One Day Without Shoes”!
What a way to kick off the official start of IMPACT GIVES BACK by having everyone going barefoot. There was no greater feeling for the gym than seeing that first mom and kiddo come in Thursday morning with no shoes and to know we have families that will join us in bringing awareness to our community. And I know there was no greater feeling for all the kids than to actually have permission to leave their shoes in the car;) THANK YOU!
We had nearly 100 of our great customers come in barefoot and another 35 post to Instagram. This will become an annual event for the gym and we hope to make even a bigger impact next year!
As a thank you from both TOMS and Impact Sports Center, we held a drawing for those of you who came into the gym barefooted and who tagged #withoutshoes and #impactgivesback. Winners will have until May 30th to claim their prize by coming to the gym.
The winners are:
Free Chipotle Burrito, Bowl or Salad
Aly Pennino, Ava Sanchez, Cora Bernhardt, Emily Chaddock, Faith.Hope.Freedom (Instagram), Finn Tomek, Gabi Franklin, Julie Lozano, Nolan Taylor, & Sylvia Mahlow.
