The Las Vegas Rescue Mission is proud to announce its annual “Walk a Mile in My Shoes” fundraising event, a joint-collaboration between the Las Vegas Rescue Mission (LVRM), Las Vegas Review-Journal, and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. Now in its eighth year, the “Walk a Mile in My Shoes” event will take place from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m on September 28, 2019 at the Las Vegas Review-Journal located on 1111 W. Bonanza Rd., Las Vegas, NV 89106.
Participants will walk from the Las Vegas Review-Journal to LVRM headquarters where they will be able to tour the facilities, learn about community needs and the services the Mission offers. Volunteers will also package a sack lunch for someone in need before leaving the facilities and walking back to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
“The Las Vegas Rescue Mission provides support and services to underprivileged individuals in need of safe shelter, meals, long-term rehabilitation programs and counseling,” said Heather Engle, CEO of the LVRM.
Walkers are also encouraged to participate in the “Extra MILE” challenge by creating their own fundraising page and raising proceeds leading up to the event. Those who raise $250 by September 6 will be entered in a raffle to win two tickets to the Las Vegas Golden Knights versus Colorado Avalanche pre-season game.
