Made in the Shade: Helping Others is a Walk in the Park

Please join Community Involvement Programs for our annual fundraising event, Made in the Shade. This will be a wonderful opportunity to share a beautiful late-summer day with a lovely group of people for a great cause. So lace up your shoes, strap on your roller blades, skates or s bike helmet and walk, run or roll around one of Minneapolis’ finest lakes.

Made in the Shade is a non-competitive event to raise funds for non-profit agencies serving people with disabilities. Just register and gather pledges. Then, lace up your athletic shoes, tune up your bike, wheelchair, or stroller and join us on September 22, 2012, at Thomas Beach on Lake Calhoun. You’ll receive a T-shirt, snacks, and post event lunch and entertainment provided by the Moss Piglets! For registration and more information, check out

The proceeds benefit ten organizations, which together support over 4,000 individuals and families in the metro area. Contact Dan McAlister via email or at 612.331.2075 for more information about becoming an Event Sponsor.

Here’s the rundown of the day’s events:
