Two Ten Heroes

Share this page
In 2015, OrthoLite Chairman and CEO Glenn Barrett and his wife, Midge, endowed $500,000 to help footwear families facing catastrophic situations such as homelessness, family violence, and natural disasters. Noting their gift as one that “comes from the heart,” the Barrett’s endowment has, to date, helped nearly 100 families get back on their feet after facing dire situations. “Similar to OrthoLite’s insoles, that financial assistance is a source of comfort that provides ‘shock protection’ to these families.” Glenn joined the Two Ten Board of Directors in 2017, and has since answered calls to action including helping to provide generators to footwear families in Puerto Rico who were affected by Hurricane Maria, and actively supporting the newly formed Two Ten Associate Board by supporting their first-ever fundraising event in September. Glenn continues to live by his personal creed, which is to give back to the industry that has given him so much.
