18 year old Rae Heim is not your average high school student.  She is spending her days running across the country to help people who don't have shoes.  Having already run through 11 states and over 1,000 miles, Rae is more than half way done with her journey, which will conclude in California in November.  Rae runs between 12 and 30 miles a day with all of her belongings piled in a backpack.  And although she is running solo, supporters from across the country are meeting up with her to run alongside and show their support.

WHO:
Rae is raising funds for the charity Soles4Souls, who is able to provide a pair of shoes to someone in need for every dollar raised.  Supporters can donate to Rae's cause by visiting http://www.soles4soulsfundraising.org/cgi-bin/view_profile.cgi?id=2766.  You can visit her website to view her schedule and other important details about her journey at http://flavors.me/raeainslee.

WHEN:
Tuesday, June 12, 2012

WHERE:
Annawan, Illinois to Colona, Illinois

About Soles4Souls
Soles4Souls collects new shoes to give relief to the victims of abject suffering and collects used shoes to support micro-enterprise efforts to eradicate poverty.  Soles4Souls' other two divisions, Clothes4Souls and Hope4Souls, provide the same relief and support through clothing and other necessities. Donating parties are eligible for tax advantages.  Visit www.giveshoes.org, www.clothes4souls.org, or www.hope4souls.org for more information.------------------

Support the River Cities' Reader

The QCA’s Only Free Press Can Really Use Your Support

 

"We're the River Cities' Reader, and we've kept the Quad Cities' only independently owned newspaper alive and free since 1993. Now we find our ability to continue providing all the features you love in serious jeopardy without the financial support of our readers.

So please help the Reader keep going with your one-time, monthly, or annual support. With your financial support the Reader can continue providing uncensored, non-scripted, and independent journalism alongside the Quad Cities' area's most comprehensive cultural coverage." - Todd McGreevy, Publisher
