We're inviting all New York City residents to enjoy the spring season and walk it out as we pair up with Birkenstock for the first-ever "Walk to Work Day" on June 9, 2010. The event will benefit Sole4Souls, a nonprofit group aiming to provide footwear for the 300-million-plus children and adults in the world without shoes.

If that's not motivation enough, the first 200 participants to fund-raise over $500 for the cause will receive a free pair of Birkenstocks so they can walk to work in comfort and style. Simply visit soles4soulsfundraising.org/marieclaire to start your own fund-raising page. Try challenging other offices and make sure to spread the word to colleagues, friends, and family. We have no doubt that by June 9th, you'll have a little extra spring in your step!
