The mission of Mile in My Shoes 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.
