Since 2009, the Cannon's and friends have been taking to the streets for the New York City Marathon, and this year will be no different. My son Jamie, our friend Mitch, and I will be running 26.2-miles on behalf of the young men and women of Covenant House.
Each year, over 57,000 youth are served through Covenant House's outreach and residential programs across 30 cities in six countries, including the United States, Canada and Latin America. Over 2,000 of them will find their fresh start just a few blocks from the finish line at the Crisis Shelter in New York.
We will push ourselves, physically and mentally, for these young people and for those who are still out there finding their way to Covenant House. No matter how they find their way to the shelter, they will each take their own journey to their finish line. Covenant House, the staff and the runners of the Home Team are committed to being with them every step of the way.
We ask you to join them on their journey by making a contribution to the team. Please donate now. Each donation and each share will make a life changing difference for a young person in need.
