In the Greater Peoria Area, 378 people identified as homeless in the census last year. The Walk in My Shoes campaign hopes to bring awareness to this problem, increase support for the homeless and receive 378 shoe donations - one pair of shoes for every homeless individual in Peoria. 

From now until November 11th, bring your gently used shoes of any size/style to Running Central in Peoria. When you donate a pair of shoes, you will receive a raffle ticket for your chance to win a gift card or other prize from local Peoria businesses. 

On November 11th, we are hosting a kick-off event. Join us for food, entertainment, speakers and the reveal of how many pairs of shoes we raised.
