We invite you to join us in our “1st Annual 5K Fun Run & Walk to Change Lives”. This run/walk will further advance our organization’s goals of providing a continuum of care for our client’s and developing additional services to help them return to independent and self-sustaining living. Homelessness is not only one of the most critical problems facing our country, it is also one of the most misunderstood. Changing Lives is dedicated to providing our clients a hand up and not a hand-out. We need the participation from the members of the community to realize this event. We ask you, please to respond to our appeal for the upcoming fun run & walk by becoming a sponsor, signing up for the run and inviting your family, friends, and associates. It will be a fun-filled day with a cause.  

The homeless and underprivileged portion of our population is growing dramatically every day and nearly four in ten (40%) are living in unsheltered locations such as on the street, in abandoned buildings, or in other places not suitable for human habitation. Together we can Change the lives of the people that need help the most.

The 1st Annual 5K Fun Run & Walk to Change Lives is great for all ages!
