Event Description

On Saturday, February 25, 2017, Home of Guiding Hands (HGH) and Randy Jones, former San Diego Padre and National League CY Young Award Winner, will once again be joining forces at Crown Point Park, Mission Bay to help raise much needed funds for the programs and services HGH provides. We encourage you to participate in the event as a runner, walker or spectator and get to know other HGH supporters and community members. This year’s event will feature a family fun zone, bounce house, music, face painting, field day games, children’s play area, and much more!

WHO: You! Register as an individual or create a team.

WHAT: 2K/8K Run/Walk to help your colleagues, friends and neighbors as we take strides towards independence.

WHEN: Saturday, February 25, 2017

WHERE: Crown Point Park, San Diego, CA 92109

All the money raised from the event will go directly to HGH and the programs we currently provide. It helps to ensure that the people we serve live a life of dignity and purpose, lives that are not limited by what they cannot do, but are enriched by what they can do. With your help, we can make independence possible.
