Made in the Shade Minnesota


Made in the Shade Minnesota is an annual fund raising event for non-profit agencies serving people with disabilities. Just register and gather pledges to support your fund raising trek. This walk, roll and run event starts at Thomas beach on Lake Bde Maka Ska (formerly known as Lake Calhoun). As the title states, you can walk, run, or roll the 5k (three mile) trail around the lake—or just bring a lawn chair and enjoy the day with us.  There will be plenty of free food, and a band to entertain us.

Made in the Shade is sponsored by 7 participating organizations, including Wingspan Life Resources. Staging a joint event spreads out the costs associated with organizing the event so that more of the money raised can go towards supporting the agencies' missions. This is a fun event and all funds raised by Wingspan go directly to the people we serve.

We'd love to have you join us September 21, 2019 for the annual Made in the Shade Walk, Run, Roll fundraiser. Contact Darolyn Gray, Development Director at 651.888.3112 for more information about sponsorships or registration, or email
