Global & Virtual: Saturday, July 18 – Sunday, July 26, 2020
This July, you can help the homeless, get some exercise, and win prizes all at the same time. A Safe Haven Foundation will launch The Inaugural Global Virtual Run/Walk to End Homelessness starting July 18, 2020. Registration is currently underway.
Though we can’t be together in-person, we now get to invite people from around the world. Proceeds will help support the prevention of homelessness and the transformation to self-sufficiency with pride and purpose. With the impact of COVID-19, this need has never been more urgent.
In continuation of our partnership with the Douglas Park Neighborhood Organization, we will be donating 50 pairs of Riot Fest 2021 passes to the cause. Everyone who signs up for the race is automatically entered to win! You can even join the Riot Fest Foundation Team! Registration starts at just $35 and kids can participate for FREE.
If you’re unable to walk or run, you can still support the cause by donating or sponsoring a team. There is no middleman, all donations go directly to help the homeless get access to a roof over their head, food, holistic services, and their entire lives and families’ lives, back on track!
