Olympian and Iowa native Lolo Jones will be back in her home town this week.
Lolo will be doing work with her foundation in Des Moines on Tuesday. It all starts in the morning with the distribution of 400 pairs of shoes at Findley Elementary.
In the afternoon the Winter Olympics hopeful will give another 200 pairs of shoes to local teen running clubs.
“The kids getting this brand new pair of shoes sparks a dream in them to continue that’s what it’s all about for me, just the message of hope,” Lolo said.
Wednesday, the 31-year-old will help host a breakfast of champions at the Iowa Events Center to honor local heroes.
