Album Name: Golden Plated Sneaker Award Return to Albums
Album Date: Feb 28, 2013
Description: A special Gold Plated Sneaker Award was presented by the Canandaigua Rotary Club to Past District Governor Jim Holden for his dedication and persistence to the project for nearly ten years. The project was an effort to recycle used sneakers to less fortunate people of the world to help curb disease. Many Rotarians plus many young Rotaract & Interact Clubs collected the sneakers. Various Club members helped build a Sneaker Mobile, shown in the picture inside, (continued)

that was used for collections in different locations. The sneakers were distributed all over the world, using various connections and spaces on international containers. (continued) Not all the sneakers donated were used; some were new with their original tags and untied laces. The Sneaker Mobile Program collected and distributed around 50,000 pairs worldwide. Recently, the Sneaker Mobile Program was transferred to the Rochester Deaf Rotary Club.
