Local retailer Fleet Feet Mount Pleasant is celebrating the anniversary of their opening day this March 14. To thank the community for its support, Fleet Feet is holding several events and giveaways during the anniversary weekend, including:
– Free Les Mills group fitness classes in the store on Friday at 8:15 a.m. and 7:15 p.m.
– Physical challenges in the store to earn discounts on Saturday and Sunday
– Family Fun Run on Saturday at 2 p.m. from the store. There will be a one mile fun run, a family relay race, and other fun games and prizes
In the past year, Fleet Feet has partnered with several local organizations and schools to better the community. The “giveback” program offered to all local schools has resulted in more than $550 being donated to support school wellness programs. The business has donated more than 70 pairs of running shoes and shirts to children in the Meeting Street Academy Running Club. They have also provided more than 200 Moving Comfort sports bras to female students in JROTC programs in the Charleston County School district through their “Support the Girls” program.
“Our family truly loves living here in Mount Pleasant and being part of this community,” said owner Amy Minkel. “We want to see the community continue to become a healthier and happier place to live by educating and empowering people of all ages to live a healthy, fit lifestyle – whether that's our customers who come to us for fitness shoes and apparel or groups in the community who we can assist toward that goal. We couldn't do any of it without our customers, though. We truly appreciate all their support over the past year and hope they'll continue supporting us so we can impact the community for years to come.”
