Event Description

If you can't Fly: RUN.  If you can't Run- WALK.  If you can't Walk- CRAWL.  But whatever you do- KEEP MOVING FORWARD~ Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Covenant House NJ provides shelter for 180 youth (ages 18-21) EVERY NIGHT.  We serve over 4,000 youth every year across 6 programs in NJ and offer unconditional love and support.  Many of our youth find themselves at Covenant House after aging out of foster care, having been victims of human trafficking, running away from an abusive environment or kicked out of their homes as a result of the LGBTQ status.  No matter what brought them to Covenant House- we emphasize RESILIENCY and NEVER giving up. It is 118.2 miles from Newark, NJ to Atlantic City, NJ- these are our 2 crisis centers.  WE CHALLENGE YOU to MOVE 118.2 miles to raise funds and awareness and show our young people at Covenant House that YOU are willing to GO THE DISTANCE for them- and to encourage them to KEEP GOING!! Being homeless is a marathon- not a sprint... some days it feels hard to keep going.  One step. One mile. One day at a time.  Take the challenge and be a champion for homeless youth.
