FANCY FEET NETWORK KICKS-OFF CAMPAIGN FOR FUN, FITNESS AND EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE
Pink Shoes Walk For Hope raises awareness for women's health, wellness and overall well-being
Los Angeles, California - Fancy Feet Network recently launched the Pink Shoes Walk For Hope campaign to inspire the next generation of girls, teens and women through fun walk events, health, nutrition and overall well-being. "I'm intrigued by the link between women, wellness and our designer shoes. Every woman brings a unique fashion statement and life experience to her wardrobe. "Buying a pretty pair of shoes is a way of expressing stylish attitudes and purchasing power." states Deborrah "Dee" Gilbert, mom, entrepreneur, and avid shoe collector. "Women are key decision-makers and it's rewarding to express economic power, spend discretionary income and stimulate local economies. We're also focused on solutions to issues affecting our families, homes and businesses; especially the critical needs of vulnerable women, women veterans, children and the elderly. Sexy high heels are only one side of the story. We're more than sandals, slippers and pumps. We live, learn, earn and give back."
The Pink Shoes Walk For Hope initiative energizes women of all ages, faith and passions, to set goals, get fit, feel good and have fun while fulfilling her hopes and dreams, impacting her community and connecting to causes she cares about. Themed wellness celebrations bring people together, face-to-face, to raise funds, friends and awareness for change and all things well - one step at a time. Walk events and expos give women opportunities to connect to arts & culture, entertainment, giveaways, exhibitors, food and fitness experts, break-out sessions, fun zones and more. Showcases include the education cafe exhibit which is designed to connect educational excellence and school supplies to children and families in need. The school box kits are just one way to help teachers and other educators reverse the lasting negative effects of poverty, joblessness, homelessness and food insecurity in America.
