Mission Statement

Running together to transform ourselves, one another, and our community.


Mile in My Shoes brings together residents of the Twin Cities from diverse backgrounds through the power of running. Based in homeless shelters, recovery programs and reentry centers for people exiting incarceration, MiMS uses running as a catalyst for community-building, boosting health and wellness, and spurring personal and social action. By running together we not only find common ground but begin to learn from and reach out to one another for support. As we transform ourselves, we transform one another.

Our Values:

Guided by the following philosophies and values, we:

Prioritize Inclusion & Safety: We believe everyone should be able to run and do so safely - especially those historically excluded from running spaces.

Show Up: We show up, are present, and honor the potential we see in ourselves and one another.

Have an open & curious mindset: Genuine interest in one another, and our own willingness to be vulnerable, lead to community connectedness and shifts in perceptions.

Embrace the Challenge(s): We grow by being challenged. Whether it be a difficult conversation, workout, or mood, we commit to embracing the hard stuff in order to grow.

Recognize Our Collective Value: Every person brings to the circle their own unique lived experiences and every person brings value. Therefore, everyone who joins us makes us better
