The Founding of Share Your Soles

Mona Purdy was the only one wearing running shoes during a half-marathon in Guatemala and realized how she could make a difference. Shortly afterward Mona started 'Share Your Soles,' an organization that accepts gently worn shoes to donate to those in need both at home and abroad.

Mona and her team have traveled to over 40 locations across five continents and donated more than three million pairs of shoes. But there is still a need and you can help.

CW26 has partnered with 'Share Your Soles' and Formula Fitness Clubs to help gather more donations of new or gently worn shoes through October 11th. You can donate at any FFC locations in the Chicagoland area. Collection bins are located inside the clubs but you do not have to be a member to donate.
