Shoes 

The state has released a memo regarding Healthy Athletes/Free Shoes below.  The state requests your patience as they work toward a solution.

 

State Memo Regarding Finish Line Shoes

For the second year, Finish Line made an incredibly generous donation of shoes as incentive for Special Olympics Indiana athletes to participate in Healthy Athletes exams at the 2018 Indiana Summer Games.

Due to severe weather that necessitated the suspension of all outdoor activities for much of the weekend, including the shoe distribution tent in Olympic Town, many athletes who met the requirements for a new pair of shoes were unable to be properly fitted and claim their shoes.

 

Every effort was made to expedite the shoe-fitting process during the hours in which Olympic Town could be open, and we are very grateful to the outstanding group of Finish Line volunteers who worked without breaks to serve as many athletes as possible.

 

We are now in the process of exploring options and will communicate any updates to County Coordinators and Heads of Delegation as soon as possible. All questions and concerns regarding this issue should be directed to Special Olympics Indiana at information@soindiana.org or (317) 328-2000.

Please refrain from contacting Finish Line or any Finish Line stores in your area, as they have no additional information about the shoe distribution process.

Thank you.

 

Thank you for supporting Special Olympics Wayne County!
