Winter and cold will soon be here in the Metroplex. It's a minor inconvenience for most runners, but a serious situation for the local homeless population.
Clive Miskin, from our sister running club NTTR, is again assisting in collecting retired running shoes for the homeless. You may have see his friend, Ken Troupe (a.k.a. the Shoe Guy) on local TV. Ken will again be out on the streets of Dallas handing out retired running shoes to the homeless.
This year, one of the collection sites will be the Rockledge Rumble on November 13th. Please bring any of your (or your friends') old running (not street) shoes for this most worthy of efforts with you to the Rumble. If you're not running, you may be heading out there to cheer the many RAW runners. If you could, please tie the laces of each pair together and indicate (with a piece of masking tape) the gender and the size.
Thank you for your assistance and participation in this great effort to help those less fortunate during this year's holiday season.
