November 29, 2014 – Estero, FL      Foot Solutions of Estero held its third annual 5K event at Koreshan State Park earlier this month on November 16th. The theme of this year’s run was the “Tofurky Trot,” promoting vegetarian and organic lifestyles.  Event organizers announced that this year’s event was a great success, bringing out close to 200 runners, volunteers, and sponsors.  Participants were asked to bring a pair of gently used shoes to be donated to the non-profit organization “Soles4Soles” and other local charities.  More than 300 pairs of shoes were collected.

“We would like to thank everyone who participated in this event, and helped to make it such an overwhelming success!”  said Chris Cole, Owner, Foot Solutions Estero.  “It was a beautiful day, and everyone seemed to be having a great time.  We would also like to extend a huge thanks to our event sponsors, as well as the band and other volunteers who donated their time to help create a successful event.”

Ada’s Natural Market was the food sponsor for the run, providing organic food products, as well as wine and beer for the post-run party.  Following the run, participants enjoyed live music by the local band, “HollowBody” while enjoying their lunch and browsing the art, vendors, and sponsor tables.  Local sponsors included Urgent Care of SWFL, The Laser Lounge Spa, Estero Family Chiropractic, Bonita Community Health Center, Shoes for the Cure, Houck Dermatology, Everglades Shirt Factory, Dance Arts by Maria, Dr. Theresa Sievers

Co-Organizer, Julie Digby added,  “It’s so rewarding to see people in the community come together to have fun and support events such as this.  In addition, they are helping out worthy organizations such as Soles4Souls with the donation of their shoes.  We have received a lot of positive feedback, and are already in the preliminary planning stages for next year’s event, which promises to be an even bigger success.”

Overall winners of the race in the male and female categories were Matthew Celebrado (with a finish time of 19:57) for male and Michaela Penzes (with a finish time of 24:19) for females.  1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners for male and female in each age category were awarded medals at the post-race ceremony.  A link to view the complete race results is posted on the Foot Solutions Estero Blog at www.FootSolutions.com/estero/blog

The shoes collected at the Tofurky Trot 5K will go to help Soles4Souls, and their mission to help victims of abject suffering.  There are more than 300,000 people in the world right now.  A pair of shoes can protect an individual’s feet from cuts and infection that can be life threatening if untreated. Through collection of used shoes, the organization supports micro-business efforts to eradicate poverty. Currently, Soles4Souls is responding to the needs of Hurricane Sandy victims, providing relief efforts and donating shoes to families that have been affected by this natural disaster.
