Las Vegas Rescue Mission, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, and the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
The Las Vegas Rescue Mission, a nonprofit that provides aid to the homeless and hurting members of the Las Vegas community, is once again partnering with the Las Vegas Review-Journal and LVMPD to host the annual “Walk A Mile In My Shoes” fundraiser. All proceeds from the event go toward funding LVRM’s programs and services.
Led by clients from LVRM’s recovery program, the one-mile walk will take participants from the Las Vegas Review-Journal to the nonprofit’s campus, where walkers can see what the organization offers, from the dining facility that serves more than 1,000 meals a day to the chapel and popular Thrift Store as well as the shelters for parents and their children. After they briefly tour the campus, participants begin their walk back to the Las Vegas Review-Journal to complete the event.
Walk begins and ends in the parking lot of the Las Vegas Review-Journal:
1111 W. Bonanza Rd.
Las Vegas, NV 89125
8 – 11 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 29, 2018
Late registration/check-in begins at 8 a.m.; Walk begins at 9 a.m.
Participants can register online at vegasrescue.org/events. The cost for registrants is $30 for adults (18+), $20 for students (first grade to college), and children ages 5 and under are free.

About Las Vegas Rescue Mission
The Las Vegas Rescue Mission has been assisting homeless men, women and children in the community for nearly five decades. Since our beginning in 1970, the Mission has been providing food to the hungry every day, shelter to the homeless, and an addiction recovery and back-to-work program for those who have lost their way. The Mission started with a small storefront building that included the chapel, kitchen and shelter that was able to house a few men. Today, the Mission campus takes up two city blocks in Downtown Las Vegas, helping hundreds of men, women and children daily, and providing approximately 30,000 meals each month. As a nonprofit Christian organization, the Mission provides services to all people without regard to race, color, creed, national origin, age, gender, religion or disability.
