Saving Brains & Sparing Soles
We are excited to announce our newest partnership with Run For Your Lives!
During 2012, Run For Your Lives (a Reed Street Production) is hosting 11 separate races throughout various cities in the US. These are races where your legs giving out are the least of your problems. Run For Your Lives is a first-of-its-kind event, one part 5K, one part obstacle course, one part escaping the clutches of zombies — and all parts awesome.
Runners will navigate a series of 12 obstacles throughout a 5K course in an attempt to reach the finish line — all while avoiding zombies. At the end of this adventure race, you get to celebrate survival (or zombie transformation) with live entertainment and music, local celebrities, vendors and food.
Project Sole will be at each event encouraging participants to avoid zombies, finish strong and of course, to donate their muddy shoes. These shoes will be processed with the rest of our s
hoe collections and sent to benefit the feet of people in numerous developing countries.
The event schedules and locations are as follows:
- Atlanta, GA – 3/3
- Boston, MA – 5/5
- Minneapolis, MN – 6/2
