Iowa Woman Running Barefoot Across America for Charity


An Iowa woman is running barefoot across the United States to raise money to provide shoes for needy children.

Rae Heim, 18, of Carroll, started her cross-country trek in Boston in April and hopes to reach Huntington Beach, Calif., in October.

She is doing this to raise money to buy shoes for kids that don't have them.

Some interesting facts:

300 million children go without shoes, daily.

Your donations will make a difference:

55% of the donations stay in the USA
    The rest are distributed to 128 other countries.
    Your $1 donation = 1 pair of shoes
