Virtual Event for 2020

As many of you already know, Homeward Bound has been a partner organization in a wonderful event called Made in the Shade; a family-friendly walk, run and roll around Lake Bde Maka Ska (formerly Calhoun) in Minneapolis. We want to again THANK YOU all for your support over the years!!

Virtual Walk, Run, and Roll

This year, Made in the Shade, as we know it, is cancelled. But we are still having a virtual campaign. We will still be fundraising and raising pledges to ensure that the houses will be able to do some special things, that they might not be otherwise able to do! We are encouraging the houses to hold a mini event at each of the houses, such as walking around their respective neighborhoods. This can be done on September 19, or before or after that date. We hope that all houses take photos, which we can share on our website and Facebook page.  Join us by walking, running, or rolling wherever you are! You’ll still Get Race Swag – T-shirts! Registration for the virtual Walk, Run, or Roll is closed for 2020. Check out this Made in the Shade video!

Steps to Participate

  1. Register online – it’s free to register – registration is now closed.
  2. Print the Pledge Form
  3. Raise Contributions! It’s easy. Ask your friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers to sponsor you! Each participant will receive an official Made in the Shade T-shirt! (While supplies last!)
  4. Walk, Run or Roll where ever you are! Turn in your pledge form and money to the development office by September 30!
  5. Celebrate Success!

T-Shirt Pickup

We will have a “collector’s edition” Virtual 2020 T-shirt in honor of the event.  Each of the individuals served by Homeward Bound, and those that register to walk, will receive a T-shirt (while supplies and sizes last!)  You must be registered by Thursday, September 10 to receive a T-shirt. T-shirt pickup will be September 15, 16, 17 at Homeward Bound’s corporate office from 9-3. Masks are required and temperature checks will be in place for t-shirt pickup. Social distancing protocols will be in play as well. Emails will go out to participants for t-shirt pickup with reminders about place and time.
