Soles for Souls

We’re excited to announce that Grandma’s Marathon, in partnership with Toyota, Advantage Emblem, Duluth Running Company and Tortoise & Hare Footwear, will again this year be helping to change the world one pair of shoes at a time through Soles4Souls!

We will be collecting new and gently used athletic shoes for Soles4Souls during marathon weekend at the 2012 Essentia Health Fitness & Health Expo. Every person who donates a pair of shoes during the Essentia Health Fitness & Health Expo will receive a coupon valid for 10% off a purchase of $50 or more from the Official Grandma's Marathon Merchandise Store. The coupon can be used during the Essentia Health Fitness & Health Expo on Thursday, June 14 from 5:00 - 9:00 pm and Friday, June 15 from 10:00 am - 9:00 pm, as well as at the Official Merchandise Tent in Canal Park throughout marathon weekend.

Since its inception in 2005, Soles4Souls has donated over 17 million pairs of shoes to those in need in over 127 countries. Please clean out your closet and bring in your shoes to help us support this wonderful cause!
