goodytwoshoes to Honour National Dignity Day

OAKVILLE, ON, April 6 /CNW/ - People's lives change when they're treated with dignity.

On Wednesday, May 18, 2011, BioPed clinicians and technicians across Canada will open their hearts - and their hands - to children and adults in need through the company's goodytwoshoes foundation.

Says Robin Schleien, President and CEO of BioPed Franchising Inc., "Our partnership with The Salvation Army is a natural extension of the goodytwoshoes mission. In closing our clinic doors on Dignity Day, we hope to open countless doorways for those individuals who do not necessarily have access to adequate footcare and footwear."

goodytwoshoes aims to give the gift of comfort, activity and better foot health to thousands of Canadians. The Salvation Army has the broadest reach of any single direct social service.  Working through local shelters in British Colombia, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Ontario, BioPed associates will properly fit and distribute thousands of pairs of shoes during this day-long special event.

"We thank our valued suppliers and clientele for supporting our efforts," Mr. Schleien continued. "Through their generosity, we've accumulated more than 2,000 pairs of shoes in our warehouse, with several thousand more pairs yet to come from 45 clinics."

Contributing suppliers include Aetrex Canada, Amfit, BSN Medical/Jobst, DJOCanada, National Shoe, PW Minor, Roblin, Saucony, Vittoria Phoenix, Serum and Simcan. Participating BioPed locations will continue to collect donations on an on-going basis.
