Homeboy 5K Run/Walk

Homeboy 5K Run/Walk Join us for the Homeboy 5k Run/Walk on Sat. September 23, 2017.
The Homeboy 5K Run/Walk is a fundraising event for Homeboy Industries! JOIN US, we can't wait to meet you!

On Saturday, September 23, 2017 more than 4,000 folks of all ages will gather for a morning-long festival celebrating the worth of every Angeleno and the work of Homeboy Industries. Event Day Festivities include: 5K Run / Walk 1K Kiddie Fun Run Kids Zone Finish Line Festival with Homegirl Café Food & Beverages "Homeboy Industries stands against the idea that there might be lives out there that matter less than other lives," Father Greg Boyle, Founder and Executive Director of Homeboy Industries proclaimed into the bull horn at last year’s event. "Put more positively: Every Angeleno counts and your being here this morning announces that with your feet." Each year over 10,000 formerly gang-involved and previously incarcerated men and women from across Southern California come through Homeboy Industries’ doors in an effort to make a positive change. They are welcomed into a community of mutuality, kinship and respect - giving them the Strength To Change! They receive a wide variety of FREE services ranging from tattoo removal to anger management to parenting classes (and a lot more) so they can move on from Homeboy Industries and become contributing members of the community - knowing they count. Join us as a runner, walker, donor, fundraiser, sponsor, volunteer or cheerleader - letting the world know that: When we walk together, no one walks alone.

Mission: Homeboy Industries provides hope, training, and support to formerly gang-involved and previously incarcerated men and women allowing them to redirect their lives and become contributing members of our community. Each year over 10,000 former gang members from across Los Angeles come through Homeboy Industries’ doors in an effort to make a positive change. They are welcomed into a community of mutual kinship, love, and a wide variety of services ranging from tattoo removal to anger management and parenting classes. Full-time employment is offered for more than 200 men and women at a time through an 18-month program that helps them re-identify who they are in the world, offers job training so they can move on from Homeboy Industries and become contributing members of the community - knowing they count!

Another big THANK YOU to everyone who supported the 10th Annual 5K Run/Walk on Saturday! We had over 3,000 registered runners and walkers, making this year's event our biggest yet! We're also excited to announced that we raised enough funds to meet our $50,000 matching grant thanks to the hundreds of supporters who gave last week.

We invite you to please take this brief survey and let us know your thoughts on the event. Your opinion is very valuable and will help make next year's 5K even bigger and better! http://bit.ly/2pAKkGQ
