Shoes4Kids! | Mar 28, 2014

North Carolina, home of Tar Heels and Blue Devils, is a state with more than just collegiate basketball rivalries. North Carolina, sadly, also has more than 603,000 under-served children. In 2012, there were over 49,000 children who live in poverty in Charlotte, NC.

APTA and Shoes4Kids has been working diligently to keep the issue of under-served kids and their health a top priority during annual conference.



New shoes being provided by PTs and PTAs during PT 2012. Shoes4Kids makes a difference in the lives of these children.

Your participation last year helped put shoes on over 1200 under-served, under-privileged kids in Salt Lake City, UT. Today, I ask that we share our strength by making sure kids in Charlotte have a clean pair of socks and a well fit and comfortable pair of athletic shoes.

Together, we can expand our reach and touch more kids. For more information, contact Brad Thuringer, PTA, at 800.657.4344 Ext 325 or brad.thuringer@lakeareatech.edu
