So awesomeness came out of Rockford yesterday according to Annie's Locker just provided new gym shoes to hundreds of underprivileged Stateline kids. She things like this happen just makes you feel good. Annie's delivered the shoes Thursday night through its 'Share A Pair Initiative'. They were given out at the Washington Park Community Center. Another scheduled delivery is going to students at the Boys And Girls Club of Rockford later this summer.

The event allows kids to get new shoes while incorporating fitness into their lives, which is something we really need for our children when we look at child obesity numbers in 2019. The best part about the program is that the kids receive brand new shoes that are sure to last for a while. This is just awesome! hats off to everyone involved in the Share a Pair Initiative
