What a treasure you provided!
A HUGE thanks to everyone who responded so generously by donating shoes to Jackton’s runners in Kenya. We will be leaving for Switzerland tomorrow where Marshall will coach the Olympian Training Camp in Verbier with Jackton. Our luggage includes two large duffels stuffed with 45 pairs of YOUR running shoes! Jackton will take these shoes back to Kenya with him, where he can distribute them to his runners. We know your shoes will be greatly appreciated and put to good use. Our thanks to:
Monica M. Martino
Kate and Zach Richter
Dave Van Wicklin
For those of who mentioned donating shoes, but maybe didn’t get them off to us on time, no worries. We will hold on to any shoes that may arrive after we depart and can donate them to Jackton next year. Or, if you just didn’t them off in the mail, hang on to them, as I know there will be other opportunities to make donations.
Thank you again for turning your trash into a treasure for less-fortunate runners in Kenya. May your thoughtfulness return to you many times over!
