On the weekend of May 6th and 7th, 2017, the Joshua House Community Center team will rally together and run in the Pittsburgh Marathon races (kids' race, 5k, half marathon, marathon and marathon relay).
We have the opportunity to impact over 1000 young people every year through our summer camps, running club, sports leagues, after-school hours, work opportunities, small group mentoring and HoopsFest. Now, we need you to join our team. Whether you’re a seasoned runner or someone who has been inspired by the determination of helping our youth, we invite you to run for a reason.
Our mission is simple. We help youth find their purpose. We do that by building community with kids, teens & young adults through education, athletics & faith. We have been serving central PA's youth since 1998. Please visit our website to learn more: www.joshuahouse.com
