THE STORY:

On October 31st, walk or run to end homelessness for children.

On any given night in Multnomah County, 2,225 children experience homelessness either on the streets, in shelter, doubled up with family or friends, at a transitional housing facility or in an apartment paid for by rent assistance. Because of being homeless, as well as other adverse childhood experiences, these children face greater barriers and obstacles in their education, employment and relationships. On October 31, we will be running and walking to end the cycle of homelessness for these children and their families.

The Race to End Child Homelessness will take place at Mt. Tabor Park on October 31.  Sign-in for the event will open at 8:30 AM at the pavilion in "picnic area A" (view site map).  Parking for the event is located at the amphitheater near picnic area A.  The agenda is as follows:

8:30 AM   Check in opens

9:15 AM   Check in closes

9:30 AM   Race/walk begins

10:30 AM Awards ceremony

The Race to End Child Homelessness is organized by an incredible planning committee from the communities connected with New City Initiative, whose mission is engaging faith communities in ending the cycle of homelessness.
