Jennie Amias Runs for a Cause

jennie runs

A mom and active runner, Jennie lives in New Jersey but hails from London, England. When she learned that a young woman in her congregation was affected by Niemann Pick Type C she wanted to know what she could do to help.

Jennie is running to raise awareness and dollars for research on May 18th, 2014. The 1/2 marathon she is running is in Morristown, NJ and is known as the Superhero Half Marathon. Her racing fees support Meals on Wheels but she is hoping to “RUN” a secondary campaign to support Nieman Pick Type C.

Show Jennie some love so she can help us Chase the Cure for NPC!

GladSoles Running Sandals Support Peace in Newark

GladSoles Running Sandals Returning to Newark for the 7th Annual Global Mala Peace Event

Get Ready for the 7th Annual Global Mala Peace Event this Sunday, Sept. 22, 2013 from 9am – 3:30pm (doors open 8:15am) at the Newark School Stadium in Newark, NJ.

After sponsoring Yoga Festival by the Sea’s beautiful sand mandala last year in Asbury Park, GladSoles (

custom made sandals

) is returning to the Newark location for this year’s peace event. This is the 3rd year in a row that we will be supporting the mission of the Global Mala Project to raise both funds and consciousness for some of the most pressing issues facing the world today.


Since its inception, this annual event has helped so many wonderful causes around the world from AIDS, War, Poverty, Environment, Children, Education and more. This year, 70% of proceeds from the event go to the Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund NJ! Global Mala NJ has become the largest Global Mala event in the world.

The purpose of the Global Mala is to unite the global yoga community from every continent, school or yoga approach to form a “mala around the earth” through collective practices upon the sacred cycle of 108.

Global Mala coincides with UN’s International Day of PEACE as well as the Fall Equinox. If each of us imagines and believes in peace and if we each do our part, no matter how big or small, we will all see meaningful differences and together we will manifest peace. Peace is Powerful!

“Be the change you wish to see in the world.” –Mahatma Gandhi
