Key Club is sponsoring this day to bring awareness to children’s health and education by going without shoes; for each race participant, TOMS will be donating a pair of shoes to a child in need.The idea of a 5K came from Key Club Treasurer, Senior Sammi Bornhardt. She learned of One Day Without Shoes and decided to create and support TOMS by holding a barefoot race/walk to get as many participants as possible. She wrote a grant that was accepted by Kiwanis International, as well as filled out the application for the City. She wrote to TOMS because, “we have many of the same beliefs as TOMS and we are founded on community service, helping those not only in our local community, but around the world. We hope to make an impact on the world, literally one (barefoot) step at a time.”Please save the date.  We need you there!
