The Evanston Running Club, in partnership with the Evanston Flying Turkey Race, is please to announce its seventh annual Shoe Drive on Nov. 24, Thanksgiving Day. Race participants, Evanston residents and friends can drop off shoes of any purpose (running, dress, etc.), any size (men’s, women’s and children’s), and in any condition (new or used) on Race Day/Thanksgiving Day at the Evanston Running Club tent.
The race will begin at Sheridan Road and Church Street, by the Arrington Lagoon. Shoe drop-off begins at 7 a.m. and will continue through the end of the race.
The Shoe Drive will benefit Changing Footprints, an Indianapolis-based nonprofit that distributes 50,000 shoes annually. This year a portion of the shoes will go to One Hope United, a nonprofit that works with children and families.
