Mile in My Shoes (MiMS) is the 2020 City of Lakes Half Marathon charity partner! This is one of our favorite events, and we're excited to build on it by partnering with race organizer, the Minnesota Distance Running Association, to offer a fundraising opportunity to MiMS community members, both new and old. In 2019, our first year of partnering together, MiMS and MDRA raised over $15K for Mile in My Shoes teams. This year, we have a goal of raising at least $20,200 - and you can help us do it!
The mission of MiMS is: Running Together to Change Perceptions and Change Lives. Our program brings together residents of Minneapolis with diverse backgrounds, serving as a catalyst for: Community-building & socialization, supporting health & wellness within the homeless population, facilitating leadership & self-efficacy, and spurring personal & political engagement within the non-homeless community.
Through running with one another, residents of Minneapolis from vastly different backgrounds not only find common ground, but they begin to learn from and depend on one another for support. As they transform themselves, they transform one another.
