Hello friends. I have been running with a group called Mile in My Shoes (MiMS) for four years and it has been life changing for me and hundreds of others who have been a part of the program. I'm shooting to earn some money for MiMS so we can continue to give running gear, race entries and support to the many folks who have chosen to say yes to taking a positive and healthy step in their lives.
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.
