The Race for Ellie is a great event drawing both competitive runners and families. This year's event marks our 8th race to change the course of Mitochondrial Disease. Events include a 5K run, 1 mile Walk, and two Kids Fun Runs (1 mile and 1/4 mile). Join us for exercise, food and fun while fundraising for Mito. The Race for Ellie is held in honor of Ellie Kovalcik, who suffers from Leigh's Disease, a form of Mito. ALL PROCEEDS support our research project at The Ohio State University Medical Center, Institute of Mitochondrial Biology.
Packet Pickup begins at Fleet Feet on Wednesday, June 19th and runs through Friday, June 21st!
June Shoe Drive - Donate Your Used Running & Walking Shoes!
Bring by your lightly used shoes during the month of June as we strive to help create sustainable small farms in Africa along with the MORE Foundation.
Help us reach our goal of 5,000 pairs of shoes during the month of June. When you drop off your used shoes we'll have a small gift for you as a show of our appreciation! (One gift per family, while supplies last)
The MORE Foundation works with us to help collect and distribute lightly used shoes in an effort to provide resources for and to build sustainable small farms.
Many people ask, "what happens to all the shoes?" The shoes are sold in major metro areas to vendors who in turn create jobs and help improve the quality of life in cities. The vast majority of Africans cannot afford new shoes. The proceeds from the sale of the shoes provides training and tools to the poorest rural farmers.
Join us for this Fleet Feet family favorite event! The Freedom 4 Miler coincides with the Orange Township 4th of July Celebration. Bring the whole family and run or walk the 4 mile race, then stick around for the parade.
