US based charity Samaritan's Feet is proud to announce that Fila, the Italian sportswear brand, will be the presenting sponsor of the World Walk, scheduled for October 11th - 25th, 2008.

Fila is delighted to partner with Samaritan's Feet in its efforts to distribute footwear to people in need around the world. World Walk is a "barefoot walk" in which Samaritan's Feet founder, Emmanuel (Manny) Ohonme will complete a 300 mile walk in his bare feet to raise awareness and support for the more than 300 million children globally who have never owned a pair of shoes.

Once Ohonme finishes his monumental 300 mile walk in his bare feet, Fila will present him with a new pair of Fila shoes to commemorate Fila's donation of shoes to people in need around the world. During the entire month of October, Fila will donate a pair of shoes to Samaritan's Feet every time a pair of shoes is purchased on Fila.

Noted Samaritan's Feet Marketing Director, Todd Melloh, "We are extremely pleased to welcome Fila as a presenting sponsor of World Walk and to the ongoing work of Samaritan's Feet globally. Their involvement and support will move to a new level both our October event and our ongoing global mission to reach the world's neediest children with the gift of shoes."

At the conclusion of the NASCAR Track Walk at Lowe's Motor Speedway in Charlotte on October 11th, Samaritan's Feet Founder Emmanuel Ohonme (Manny) will walk in his bare feet to Atlanta to kick off the "World Walk." Simultaneously, walkers will join across the globe on October 25th in a "simul-walk" to be orchestrated in more than 25 countries served by the Samaritan's Feet ministry. He will conclude at the Atlanta Motor Speedway on October 26th.

The goal is to raise $1,000,000 and 300,000 pairs of shoes during his 300 mile journey. Manny will stop at historic sites throughout his journey recognizing political figures and citizens who have changed our country for the better. Samaritan's Feet will also coordinate shoe distributions throughout our journey.
