Once again Mile in My Shoes is the official charity partner of the 2019 Drumstick Dash 10K and Pi Run 5k! Help us reach our goal of $10K - and help MiMS bring the transformative power of running to even more people experiencing homelessness in 2020.
Mile in My Shoes (MiMS) brings together residents of the Twin Cities with diverse backgrounds through the power of running. Based in homeless shelters and re-entry centers for people exiting incarceration, MiMS is as a catalyst for community-building, boosting health and wellness, building leadership and self-efficacy, and spurring personal and social action. By running together, our Resident Members and Run Mentors not only find common ground, but begin to learn from and reach out to one another for support. As they transform themselves, they transform one another.
We run together to change perceptions and change lives.
Our teams will build bonds, boost wellness, and spark social action by bringing the power of running to people experiencing homelessness and other barriers.
