Dear friends and family:
There is something that is near and dear to my heart that I want to share with you, and also ask for your support in helping it continue..
As many of you know, while I was at Catholic Charities, I began working with an organization called Mile in My Shoes The mission of Mile in My Shoes is Running Together to Change Perceptions and Change Lives. It brings together residents of Minneapolis from diverse backgrounds, and serves 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.
It has been rewarding for me to be a part of Mile in My Shoes and I continue to be involved even though I am no longer at Catholic Charities.
I would love for you to join me in supporting this great organization by supporting us with a donation (any amount is appreciated!)! I can tell you that I have personally seen the pride and transformation that takes place for those involved.
Thanks for helping!
