Mile in My Shoes

We run together to change perceptions and change lives. Our teams will build bonds, boost wellness, and spark social action by bringing the power of running to people experiencing homelessness and other barriers.

Public, Societal Benefit

Mile in My Shoes is seeking board members with a passion for our mission and an understanding of the commitment required of a working board, where the board has some functions that might normally be staff roles. Prior Board experience favored.

Attendance at Virtual meetings (during the pandemic) on the third Wednesday of the month from 6:30 - 8:30pm CT. In addition, a commitment of 4-8 hours per month (if possible) focused on the following: (1) Fundraising and making Mile in My Shoes a philanthropic priority. (2) Serving on committees and taking on special projects as designated by the Board Chair. (3) Acting as an Ambassador for Mile in My Shoes! Board terms are typically 2 years.

For the past years, the Board of Directors has functioned as a working board and all members assumed multiple responsibilities. The focus of the current Board is transitioning from day-to-day operations into long-term sustainability and planning. MiMS currently has a staff consisting of an Executive Director that answers to the Board as well as a Program Director (to be filled).
