Made in the Shade

Homeward Bound’s 16th Annual Made in the Shade Recap

For the safety of all, Made in the Shade 2021 was also a virtual campaign.  Because it was the 30th Anniversary of MITS, a few of the Planning Committee met at the foot of Lake Bde Maka Ska and did a first time ever Facebook live broadcast!!

THANK YOU to all who walked before or on September 18 in observance of this wonderful event!!  A special thank you to Team Mahoney for consistently collecting over $2,000 in pledges; our largest pledge raisers!  Their group of family and friends gathered and walked the Coon Rapids Damn park.   We would also like to give special acknowledgment to the staff and Program Managers at each of the houses, that visited their local parks and walked their neighborhoods.

Though we did not gather as a group, which limited our sponsors (that donate water, chips, grill the burgers, etc.)  we still received support from: Plymouth Lions Club, Stone Arch Logistics, One Wheel Marketing, New Hope Lions, Crystal VFW Post 494 and Co-op Partners Warehouse.

Your continued support of this event means so much to the individuals.  The money the houses raised goes directly to providing the individuals we serve with the means to attend community or sporting events, purchase a much needed item at their house; funds to share an outing with their peers or whatever they like to do to enjoy their time together!   

Thank you again to everyone who supported Homeward Bound in this event!

If you haven’t had a chance to include your support, you can make a donation, anytime!
