Fitness Systems Teams with Soles4Souls

Curtis Horton of Fitness Systems in Mobile, AL admits that going barefoot stops you from doing many things.

"You couldn't work, you couldn't go play, we just went to the grandparents house to get shoes because we were going to the park" said Horton.

Yes, things would be pretty difficult without something on your feet. That is why they have decided to team up with Soles4Souls.

The goal at fitness systems is to collect 2,300 pairs of shoes by the end of October. If you live in the area, all you have to do is go through your closet and drop them off.

"The goal is to have slightly used shoes, maybe some you would give your family or maybe a brand new pair that you are not going to use," said Paul White, manager of the Fitness Systems Mobile store.

Not only will these shoes be delivered to disaster and poverty victims in the U.S., but also to 60 other countries around the world.

Fitness Systems has two locations in our area, Airport Boulevard in Mobile and on Bayou Boulevard Pensacola.
