If you go into most running stores in the area, you are likely to see Mona’s signs for “Share Your Soles,” the charity Purdy started 13 years ago to provide shoes to people all over the world who need them.

Purdy returned from Mexico where she delivered over 3000 pairs of shoes to the less fortunate to find that her apartment was completely destroyed by an electrical fire. Everything gone.

It’s time to give back to the lady who has given so much to Chicago and the world, and has never asked for anything for herself in return.
