We are excited to partner with RunningWorks for another great event! RunningWorks is a non-profit running program founded to use sport to empower individuals and families to break cycles of abuse, neglect, poverty and homelessness – one stride at a time.
Their vision is to stop the destructive cycle of homelessness before it starts by reaching the most vulnerable and socially excluded with values accrued through running – skills they can use to further their lives.
Their core values include respect, discipline, teamwork, accountability, honesty, dependability, education, endurance, family, morality, commitment, independence, giving, service, trust, volunteerism, and willingness. Displaying our core values helps break the stigma associated with homelessness.
