20th Annual Walk A Mile In My Shoes
February 5 @ 8:00 am - March 20 @ 10:30 am
Thank you for helping us celebrate 20 years of investing in new beginnings!
The Kokomo Rescue Mission Board of Directors, Staff and Volunteers would like to express our deep appreciation to the community for its support as we celebrated the 20th Anniversary of our Annual Walk A Mile in My Shoes event. Thanks to the amazing generosity of those who sponsored this event along with those who sponsored walk participants, we were able to reach our goal. We are so grateful for the support received enabling us to continue offering a safe, sober and spiritual environment for the women and children staying at our shelters.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we were faced with the challenge of how to make this year’s walk a reality. Instead of walk participants coming to the Mission to walk a mile to Watered Garden and Open Arms, they were asked to ‘Walk Where You Are’. We were so excited to see the number of teams that jumped on board to participate and their photos walking in different locations at different times. The walk participants play such an important role in this annual event. Not only do they raise funds to support the women and children we serve, they also display their love and compassion by walking a mile in their shoes.
The Walk Team awards for 2021 are as follows:
First Place/The Golden Sneaker award: Kokomo Christian Fellowship-Jesus Saves Soles,
Second Place/The Silver Slipper award: Rossville Bible Fellowship
Third Place/The Bronze Baby Bootie award: UMC Kokomo ConneXion.
The winner of the Pink Sneaker school award went to Eastern High School.
