Peachtree City, GA (PRWEB) December 13, 2011
This holiday season SIGVARIS is honored to team up with Methodist Sports Medicine / The Orthopedic Specialists and the Indianapolis Colts for the Our Hearts to Your Soles Charity event held at Wheeler Mission Ministries in Indiana.
The Our Hearts to Your Soles event is part of a national effort to help relieve foot problems experienced by homeless men. The event will take place Dec. 13 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Wheeler Ministries.
To help with the efforts, SIGVARIS has donated support socks from the Well Being Line to help improve the leg and foot health of homeless men in the area. Men that attend the event will be given new socks and shoes during the foot health-screening event.
Approximately 100 homeless men will be served through this local imitative. Last year, more than 8,000 homeless people were taken care of during these events held across almost 40 states.
“SIGVARIS is honored to be a part of any project that helps promote health and well being,” says Jason Kern, product manager for SIGVARIS North America. “As a global leader in leg health, we are honored to provide compression socks during this free medical foot screening event for homeless men in the Indianapolis area.”
