We’re less than one month away from the Foot Levelers Blue Ridge Marathon, and to celebrate we’ll be introducing you to some of our fine folks here who will be running and volunteering in the big event.

Wishing you a warm, safe, and hopefully-not-overly-stuffed Thanksgiving celebration today.

May we take this day, and every day, to be grateful for all the blessings we have in life–our family, friends, the good food we eat, the roofs over our heads, the laughter and moments we share with others.  Let us also remember those less fortunate than us, at home and around the world.

To the doctors and patients we serve, we are ever so thankful to you. YOU are who make Foot Levelers possible. read more

Thank You for Your Service, Veterans

On behalf of the entire Foot Levelers family, thank you to all those who have served our country as military personnel.  Without your sacrifices, many of the freedoms and blessings we enjoy as Americans would not be possible. For those who are actively deployed overseas, we wish you a safe and expedient return to your friends and family. Today, and every day, we honor you.
