National Day Calender: I Love My Feet Day
Did you know that August 17th is National I Love My Feet Day? It is a day to really recognize the importance of our feet and practice good foot care. Just think about how much we've used our feet today. We use our feet to stand, to walk, to climb, to run, and so much more.
Our feet take us to and from where we need to go. They are our primary mode of transportation. They allow us to swim, play sports, skip, and dance. Our feet accomplish all the things our hands cannot.
