Our mission: Running together to change perceptions and change lives

Mile in My Shoes (MiMS) brings people from diverse backgrounds together through the power of running. Our Resident Members have run thousands of miles side by side with volunteer Run Mentors, and completed races from one mile to a marathon(!), changing perceptions of homelessness in the Twin Cities every stride along the way. Learn more.

Support MiMS!

Your tax-deductible donation helps us outfit our runners with much-needed gear, cover race entry fees for people running their very first 5K, and more. 

Already looking forward to October's Twin Cities Marathon? Sign up as a fund-racer for MiMS and get FREE registration for the full marathon or 10-mile race.
