At Wheeler Mission, hope often starts with a meal.

Wheeler welcomes its guests with warm, nutritious meals and safe shelter. Once their basic needs have been met, the doors are open for long-term care that leads to lasting hope.

In 2019, Wheeler served 339,315 meals to our neighbors experiencing homelessness. The need is great and YOU can make a difference!

Make a difference!

Sign up today and virtually race across Indiana to raise awareness and funds for Hoosiers experiencing homelessness. Between August 1 and Labor Day...
convert whatever steps you take into miles! You'll even be able to track where you are on the map each day once you submit your miles.

Starting August 1 through Labor Day, 157 miles is just over 4 miles per day. Getting a late start or not sure you want to go 157 miles? Ask 4 other people to join you and race as a team! 

100% of the proceeds goes directly to Wheeler Mission and provides meals and care for the men, women, and children who come to Wheeler seeking help and hope.
