BENEFITING: Glide Memorial United Methodist Church
EVENT DATE: Dec 05, 2015
For more than fifty years, Glide has worked to create a radically inclusive, just and loving community mobilized to alleviate suffering and break the cycles of poverty and marginalization. Glide assists a diverse cross-section of homeless, low-income and marginalized populations through a comprehensive suite of services including daily free meals, housing assistance, domestic violence counseling and abatement, substance abuse recovery, licensed childcare, K-5 afterschool and summer programs, a family resource center, HIV/Hep C outreach and prevention, a drop-in legal clinic, and on-site access to primary and mental health care. Glide has founded and sustained visionary programming and achieved tangible results for tens of thousands of individuals and families, and remains a life-changing gateway to comprehensive care that embraces each person with dignity and respect.
While this 50 mile run will be incredibly difficult for me, it doesn't compare to the difficulty the people that utilize Glide's services go through on a day-to-day basis. Please help me meet (or even surpass) the goal of $10,000 for Glide this December.
