The aim of this program is to motivate disadvantaged children, grades K through 12, to reach physical fitness goals. Goals such as completing a 5K race, learning new sports skills, and improving their body mass index by providing them with new, brand name athletic shoes.
Shoes for Austin will provide over 8,000 pairs of shoes to more than thirty SHOES 4 KIDS nonprofit partner agencies in 2008.
Currently, Austin Foot and Ankle Specialists and Dr. Craig H. Thomajan DPM, are accepting donations for the Back to School Donations Drive (August 15-22, 2008) at our office located at 5000 Bee Cave Road, Suite 202, in Austin Texas. Your donation of as little as $20 dollars will provide a deserving child a new pair of athletic shoes. These shoes represent the health and wellness of the youth and families in the greater Austin area.
We encourage all of our patients to donate to this wonderful organization to help with the fitness and foot health of our community. We will keep you posted about upcoming events and fund raising goals.
