A Mile in Their Shoes is a Quest® series that converts your energy and endurance levels into funds for an incredible cause. It’s all about guts and glory – and giving back! It’s walking the talk in the truest sense, with fighting fit challenges to move you forward in an epic race – online and in your own time.

Real change happens when you’re willing to walk a mile in another person’s shoes…
