Giving Back: 2010 Made in the Shade

Sep 7, 2010


My wife Nicole works for Homeward Bound, Inc. (HBI), which is a community of 21 group homes that has been supporting children and adults with disabilities for 37 years.  HBI is a non-profit organization founded by parents of children with disabilities to provide an alternative to institutional care.  One of the main philosophies of HBI is to ensure that the individuals are active in the community.  They have jobs and get out in the community as often as possible.

Nicole has been with HBI for over 13 years and enjoys what she does.  She’s the Supervisor for the Lake Drive house.  They are participating in a fundraising event called Made in the Shade on September 25th.  The individuals will be walking, running and rolling around Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis.  The Lake Drive house is collecting pledges that will be matched by HBI.
If you are interested in donating please go to the donation page (  Be sure to select Lake Drive as the house you want to donate to. Donations are tax-deductible.  The money raised will stay at the Lake Drive house to better the lives of the individuals my wife works with every week.  If you know of others that may be interested in donating, please feel free to pass along the website.

Thanks everyone!
