2015 Heroes of the Homeless

Thank you to our generous 2015 Heroes of the Homeless

Carolyn Colwell, Your City SportHero - Carolyn Colwell

Carolyn was inspired to launch her buy-one-give-one custom sock company after volunteering at a homeless-serving event where socks were in short supply.  For every pair of socks ordered, Your City Sports donates a second pair for those experiencing homelessness. Carolyn has distributed over 5000 pairs of socks in Surrey since January 2014.
