Made in the Shade Walk, Run, Roll fundraiser

Made in the Shade is Scheduled

for Saturday, September 16th

Our Fall “Walk, Run, Roll” event at Lake Bde Maka Ska raises funds for critical needs in our 29 group homes, helps fund replacement vehicles, and provides funding for enrichment programs. Funds also support our In-Home program. Join us for all of the usual fun—free food, entertainment, a visit from MN Superheroes, and more. Street parking is free, and the event kicks off with a spirited exercise warm up at 10:00 with instructors from The Firm.

Lunch is provided from 11AM-12PM. You may choose to walk around the lake, or enjoy music at the mainstage. Wingspan is pleased to collaborate with 6 other disability organizations joining us to celebrate the event’s 31st year!

Sponsorships start at just $250—request information by emailing Darolyn Gray at Thank you for considering a gift within your means!  You can make your gift to a specific group home or team, and you can also designate in honor or in memory of someone. You can also donate by phone at 651.888.3112, or mail your donation to Wingspan Life Resources, 30 East Plato Boulevard, St. Paul MN 55107
