Ankle and Foot Centers of Georgia is gearing up for this weekend’s 10th Anniversary of the 2-Day Breast Cancer Walk in Atlanta! Beginning October 6, and ending October 7, 2012, our physicians and staff will be treating participants at the B’rest Stops located along the route.

Ankle and Foot Centers of Georgia has volunteered for the past several years with the “It’s the Journey” Organization and we plan on continuing to assist this great cause. At Ankle and Foot Centers of Georgia, we believe in giving back to our communities and assisting those in need.

We volunteer every year for several community events and health fairs.

We provide the same compassionate and quality of care that is provided to our patients at all of our 18 Metro-Atlanta locations! We look forward towards meeting and treating all of the participants this weekend and assisting in raising money and awareness for breast cancer!

Toys For Tots – Ankle and Foot Centers New Drop Off Point

It’s that time of year again, the season for giving and in the holiday spirits Ankle and Foot Centers of Georgia is participating in the Toys for Tots Campaign. Since 1947 this U.S. Marine Corp Foundation has delivered the message of hope to millions of children through shiny toys that will help motivate them to grow into responsible, productive, patriotic citizens and community leaders.

Last year Toys for Tots distributed over 500,000 toys to boys and girls across the Metro-Atlanta Area and 7.2 million gifts to children in over 700 communities nationwide to children in need.

Starting November 14th, 2011 all Ankle & Foot Centers locations will be official drop off sites. These distinctly decorated boxes will be on display in the waiting room of our offices until the second week of December. Donated gifts are not limited to just toys; books, games and sports equipment will also be accepted. These gifts will make a significant contribution to the educational, social and recreational development of these children, also providing a memorable Christmas that they will cherish for a lifetime.

As Ankle & Foot embarks on its first year of the Toys for Tots Campaign, we ask that you take the time and support the cause to bring a smile to a child less fortunate and donate today at one of our 10 various locations. Every child deserves a gift on Christmas day.

Ankle and Foot Centers of Georgia Participates In the 9th Annual “It’s a Journey” 2-Day Breast Cancer Walk

Ankle and Foot Centers of Georgia was proud to take part in the 9th annual 2-day Breast cancer Walk hosted by It’s The Journey. It’s the Journey is a non- profit organization that focuses on raising money and awareness for breast cancer, as well as the unmet needs of Georgia’s breast cancer community.

Volunteer doctors of podiatry and staff members from The Ankle and Foot Centers of Georgia were stationed along the route, which spanned 20 miles on the first day and 10 miles on the second day. At each “B’rest” stop, these “Foot Angels” treated ailments ranging from blisters to sprained ankles, tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, calluses, bunions, and strains.

“The fight against breast cancer is not a single battle,” Dr. Joseph Giovinco said. “It’s an ongoing struggle that is faced with courage and determination. It is, in fact, a journey. From innocence to mature awareness, and a voyage such as this should never be taken lightly. After taking part in such an extraordinary event we will think of those who have walked their course or simply could not complete their journey in the fight against breast cancer.”

This year’s walk took walkers on a scenic and memorable route which led them through historic in-town neighborhoods, new developing areas, and parkways, including lunch on the lawn of the Governor’s Mansion before finishing at Pemberton Place at The World of Coca-Cola.

“It was by far an emotional weekend for everyone. For the walkers, it was the challenge of completing the journey for themselves, in honor of a friend, a family member or simply for the cause. For the volunteers it was the echoes of the heart-felt stories, the tears in walkers’ eyes, and the language of walkers’ bodies telling the stories of their pain who at the end of it all would say, “If I can survive cancer, I can endure a few blisters.”
