Mittens for Detroit’s Virtual Halloween Fun Run or Walk or Creep or Crawl!
October 30, 2020 @ 8:00 AM - November 2, 2020 @ 5:00 PM EDT
Have a blast and scare up some gloves! Parade with a Purpose!
Costumes not required… but DEFINITELY encouraged!
Mittens for Detroit’s 10th anniversary is this Halloween… and we need YOU to help us celebrate!
This virtual fun run/walk is a great way for you and your family, school, co-workers, neighbors, and any other friendly spirits to have a great time while doing good! Whether you walk, run (from zombies?!), or take a ride on your broomstick, every dollar raised will help purchase new warm gloves for people whose hands would be very cold without them this winter.
Register any time before October 30th, be sure to invite your guy and ghoul friends, and join in the fun October 30 & November 2. We want your photos and videos showing how you strutted your Halloween stuff for a good cause!
HOW YOUR FUN RUN OR WALK WILL HELP THOSE IN NEED…
Every year, about 32,000 pairs of new mittens and gloves are collected in public and private collections. MFD works with about 75 Distribution Partners to get these new pairs onto hands. Because of COVID-19, we are not able to hold our annual collection this fall, and we have had to shift our focus to fundraising. Your donation will go toward the purchase of new pairs from our wholesale partners. For instance, we are able to purchase warm pairs for $7 that would retail for $20. Thank you for your participation – and we hope you have a blast this Halloween!
Mittens for Detroit is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that collects, purchases, and distributes new mittens and gloves to kids, teens, and adults in need in Detroit. Please contact us for more information on how you can help warm the hands and hearts of Detroiters. Thank you!
