Yes, I know that this post for a charity event is early, but registration is now open and there is a discounted admission if you enroll to help by March 15, 2013. Walk in No Shoes is a charity walk run event to benefit the poor and persecuted in South Sudan. The event funds will go to the Sudan Relief Fund to help them raise awareness, generate funds and support relief efforts that provide food, safe drinking water, clothing, shelter, medical attention, education and hope to the people of the region regardless of nationality, religion, ethnicity or what tribe they belong to. You can get more information on the Sudan Relief Fund HERE.
The event will take place in Woodley Park. The event will have 3 different categories of running/walking. There will be a 10K walk/run, a 5K walk/run and a 1K barefoot walk. The latter is a sort of kinship exercise as the Sudanese often walk miles barefoot for water, food and medical attention. There is a fee to enter these raises that will generate the funds. The fees range from $25-45, and go up after 3/15 to $25-55. There are also opportunities to volunteer to help them that day. All the information you could want on the event can be found on their web site HERE. These donations are tax deductible as the fund is a 501 c(3) charitable organization.
