TNT will host a gear sale and swap meet at the Spring '10 TNT Kick-off Meeting, November 7th in the gym at Peachtree Presbyterian Church, 3434 Roswell Road NW, Atlanta, GA 30305. TNT will also be collecting old running shoes for the Nike Shoe Recycle program. Nike is an official sponsor of the program.
