On July 20th, I'll crush the Crusher, a 50+ mile "wilderness ultra" in da U.P. of Michigan. I couldn't do these badass races without the support of my running community. Which is why I support Mile in My Shoes! MiMS provides the same running community to people who most likely wouldn't have access to it otherwise. Run Mentors train and engage with people experiencing homelessness or re-entry to society after a period of incarceration. The resident runners show up (most times before the sun even comes up) to better themselves and their community by making connections while running.
Your donation provides gear (shoes, shirts, and shorts) for the residents, as well as race entries so they are working toward a common goal. Your support helps people train for and toe the start line... which is an incredible and life changing feeling. Thanks for your support of MiMS!!!
