Running is my passion. When I am running I feel like I have no limits and can accomplish anything in life.
While I enjoy this privilege, I know that teens in my community face challenges on a daily basis that are as basic as not having access to food, shelter or support from their community. I want them to feel valued and supported, so they too can pursue their passions in life. That's why I started RUN 4 IMPACT with my friends and we need your help.
We are using our love for running to plan a series of jogathon and walkathon events, to raise money and awareness, lifting up and supporting local homeless youth.
On this day, we plan to raise $2,500 to donate to Stand Up For Kids in Orange County and Los Angeles County.
You are welcome to donate, run/walk with us, or do both! At our event we will have a 1 mile and 3 mile event with walking lanes going constantly. Walk, run or just come support us, as we count our laps around the track - each lap brings us closer to our goal. We won't be trying to set any records -- we're doing this to raise awareness and come together to make an impact.
This event is just the beginning. After we learn from our first event, we plan on holding several events a year and registering RUN 4 IMPACT as an official non-profit 501(c)3 organization. We want to have an increasing impact on ending the cycle of youth homelessness. We are just getting started on this journey.
Your sponsorship and participation can make a big difference in a child's life. Thank you for helping us make an impact by sponsoring a runner!
