Angels On Site
Rockford Turkey Trot
had a fabulously chilly time at the Rockford Turkey Trot! We gave away
all of the Running For Two (R42) bandanas and jelly bracelets that we
brought so 208 more people now know about R42.
runners told us they were sending them out of state.... so the movement
that was started by our namesake Annie is having widespread impact on
We made the cover of the November 2013 issue!
Surprised by an Angel
were surprised by an angel on October 2, 2013 when the Rockford Road
Runners presented us with a check for $3,000 from an anonymous donor!
This donor, who we are calling "Angel", donated anonymously to Annie's Locker last year as well.
THANK YOU to this generous donor and to all of the earthly angels who work silently to improve our community.
Share A Pair Update
33 elementary schools. 500 pairs of shoes.
We set an ambitious goal to collect 500 pairs of gym shoes in less than 1 month. Between
shoe donations and $2,875 in cash donations, we met our goal of
obtaining 500 pairs of new youth gym shoes for the International Day of
Peace and needy students! Before distribution to students this week, the
shoes were part of the International Day of Peace "Walking in Their
Shoes" labyrinth at Rockford University in September.
school was one of the schools to receive shoes. This 5 year old was
first to receive. He was actually a whole size larger than the ones he
was wearing to school.
Thanks to everyone who supported this amazing community project.
