REACH/Faith in Action
We support the efforts of the REACH Cold Weather Shelter For The Homeless and Faith in Action, a broad faith-based care and service program.
This spring, the REACH shelter is having a charity run on April 6th to raise money for "Cash For Cots," a $20,000 fundraising campaign that helps REACH operate through the cold winter months and have enough beds for those who need them. They are organizing a Half-Marathon, a 10K, a 5K, and a 1-Mile run. The top three finishers in the 10K, the top three finishers in the 5K, and all Half-Marathon participants will receive a medal. Prizes will be awarded to individuals winners in age categories.
