Vibram footwear allows one's anatomy to work naturally and move freely creating less impact on the knees, hips and lower back. According to Vibram FiveFingers shoes, you get all the health benefits of barefoot running combined with their patented VibramĀ® sole that protects runners from elements and obstacles in their path.

The Dash is set for Sunday, March 11 and benefits stroke services at Glendale Adventist Medical Center. Stroke is the 2nd leading cause of death in the San Fernando Valley and the leading cause of long-term disability.
