it’s time to look forward to the days ahead of Made in the Shade 2023! Join us for a day of fun with free food, entertainment, and building relationships!

Made in the Shade is our annual 5K walk to support adults with disabilities. We join with six other organizations like us for this exciting day of fundraising! Made in the Shade is truly a non-competitive walk, run, and roll—so anyone can join in the fun!

We are thrilled to announce WCCO anchor, Shayla Reaves, will host our event this year!   
All of the funds raised go directly to the individuals we support. Each Phoenix Residence home decides how to use the funds, whether that is on music therapy, weekend trips, or new equipment needed in the home.

All are welcome to attend, so bring your friends and family! Don’t forget to stop by our registration table to sign up for a drawing of a $40 GIFT CARD TO TARGET just for showing up to our event! And don't forget to vote on your favorite pieces in this year's art contest!
