Bashful Ostrich 5K runs with Soles4Souls

Soles4Souls will be at the annual Bashful Ostrich 5k and they want to take your running shoes! No, not the ones you will be wearing to the race of course, but the ones sitting in your closet that you no longer wear. Soles4Souls will collect new and used running shoes and donate them to the Philippus Church in the Over-the-Rhine section of Cincinnati to distribute to the poor and homeless. The shoes you donate can be new or slightly worn, they just ask that they do not look or smell like your uncle Al's tennis shoes that he has been wearing since the 60s.
This is the 7th annual Bashful Ostrich 5K run and walk where the net proceeds go to foundations that help survivors of sexual abuse. The race takes place in beautiful Sharon Woods on Memorial Day and begins at 9:00 a.m. This year they have teamed with Soles4Souls to help the local community in another positive way. Get there early and look for the Soles4Souls booth.
