Walk a Mile in My Shoes

February 13, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am

Open Arms - Walk a Mile in My ShoesWalker Packets are available for pick up at the front desk of the Mission!  Come on by and sign up your team!

Kokomo Rescue Mission’s annual winter walk fundraiser, one mile in length, is a round trip from KRM Headquarters to Open Arms, our shelter for homeless women and children. Rest, refreshments and tours are provided at Open Arms. Each walker receives a free T-shirt.

Who: Walkers raise at least $50 each. Teams may have up to 20 walkers. The Golden Sneaker Trophy is awarded to the top fundraising team. (Rossville Bible Fellowship won in 2014, raising $9,527.45. The 2014 walk featured 105 teams and raised over $129,000!)

Where: Kokomo Rescue Mission Headquarters is located at 321 W. Mulberry Street. Open Arms is at 929 N. Main Street. The route for the walk is from KRM down Mulberry to Buckeye St., along the Industrial Heritage Trail to Havens St. to Open Arms (gate for Open Arms will be open along Havens Street).  The return route is the same route but backwards: Havens Street to the Industrial Trail heading south back towards Mulberry Street and west to the Mission.  Click here for a map of the Walk Route: Industrial Heritage Trail Walk Route

When: Saturday, February 13, 2016. Begin walking between 8:00-10:30 am.

Registration:  BE SURE your team # is on each walker envelope to accurately track your team’s fundraising.
