Congratulations and thank you to all of our members and guests that helped to fill up the very first box of used shoes to be shipped off to Africa and refurbished for resale! ReRun shoes is an independently owned non-profit organization operating out of western Massachusetts, dedicated to packaging and shipping used shoes from the States to African nations, where they are then refurbished and sold at an affordable price on the local market. ReRun shoes simultaneously helps to keep used shoes out of American landfills while helping out less fortunate nations overseas.
Excel Fitness has sent the first full box of used shoes, totaling 40 pairs, back to our partners at ReRun Shoes. In just one month we had great success filling the box located in the lobby of the gym and are ready to start filling up box number two! Bring any used pair of shoes, doesn’t matter what kind, to start doing your part to keep shoes out of our landfills and improve the economy of several sub-Saharan nations!
Please visit the gym and talk with any one of our trainers if you have any questions or are looking for more information on how to get involved.
