A coalition of three homeless-outreach organizations – Community Lodgings, Bridges to Independence and Homestretch – will be hosting their third annual 5K “Home Run for the Homeless” in a different format this year.
Rather than running as a group on the Washington & Old Dominion Regional Trail this year, participants will be able to run where they choose anytime from Oct. 10 (which is designated World Homeless Day) to Oct. 31.
“It’s easy to assume that homelessness doesn’t exist in these wealthy communities, but it does,” said Lynn Thomas, executive director of Community Lodgings. “By partnering with other local non-profit organizations that want to end homelessness, we expand our reach – there’s power in numbers.”
