Bradley University students, Running Central, and the Dream Center teamed up to collect hundreds of pairs of shoes for the local homeless community.
The event, called “Walk in My Shoes,” was held Saturday, November 11 at Running Central.
Over a dozen local businesses contributed to the campaign by donating gift cards and baskets to include in a raffle.
The goal was to raise money for 378 shoes — one pair for every person who was identified as homeless in the Greater Peoria area last year.
In all, the event collected 1,042 pairs of shoes.
