Supporting Loved Ones at Made in the Shade 2019

The Phoenix Residence recently gathered for our annual Made in the Shade walk around the lake to support adults with disabilities across the Twin Cities.

Last weekend, Phoenix joined in a cause that is near and dear to our hearts: supporting adults with disabilities at the annaul Made in the Shade 5K walk, run & roll. Thank you to everyone who joined us  or contributed on our behalf!! None of this would be possible without your love and support!

Even with the impending weather, we still had over 700 people attend the event, including several Phoenix Residence individuals, families and staff. Together with six other disability organizations, we joined with people from across the Twin Cities for this day of fun and celebration at the beautiful Lake Calhoun/Bde Maka Ska.

The day started out with a program to thank all our supporters and sponsors—including a surprise birthday message to our CEO/President Darlene Scott. After a pre-walk warmup, participants hit the lake with the Northstar Roller Derby and Superhero teams cheering them on! After the walk, everyone enjoyed a cookout and music to close out the morning…all before the rain came down!

Thank you to everyone who supported this year’s Made in the Shade efforts! Whether you donated to a house or joined us the day of, we appreciate all your support! All funds raised go directly back to our homes to their specific fundraising goals. Our homes fundraised for music therapy, weekend trips, and outings.

Stay tuned for more information on next year’s Made in the Shade walk. To see more photos from Made in the Shade 2019, please visit our Facebook page.
