More Information

Celebrating 25 years of providing quality services to people with disabilities. 1992 - 2017

Made in the Shade (MITS) is PRI's annual walk, run, and roll around Minneapolis' beautiful Lake Calhoun. Partnership Resources partners with seven similar agencies who provide services to people with disabilities. Each organization recruits their own participants and sponsors for the event while fundraising for a specific cause. We hope you can join us as a participant on September 16th. If you can't make it to the lake on the day of the event, you can still help by making a donation on line (see our Home Page to donate). MITS is an important fundraising event for PRI and your support can help us maintain and expand opportunities for people with disabilities.

How Made in the Shade Funds will be used:

To mark the 25th anniversary of MITS, PRI has set a fundraising goal of $25,000!! Money raised will be used for JOB TRIALS for PRI clients. When a business is undecided about hiring clients from PRI, we work with them to carve out job tasks that aid the business and show PRI client capabilities. PRI pays the client wages, so no cost to the business - but priceless experience for PRI workers.
