I was always told to do what makes me happy. Running to help people does just that which led me to decide to run my first race on behalf of a non profit organization. That organization is the Somerville Homeless Coalition, Inc.
I have worked at the coalition for almost a year. As time went on I felt the need to do more and more for the the clients going through this issue.
My main goal is to spread awareness in regards to the homelessness issue. Over the last few years I came to realize how many people face homelessness. This issue ranges from our neighboring cities to all over the world. The Somerville Homeless Coalition, Inc is a crucial non-profit organization that works to prevent homelessness, provides shelter, housing options, case management and food services to the community. Here is a quick link that explains how your donation will help people experiencing homelessness : https://www.somervillehomelesscoalition.org/programs/ .
My goal is to raise $500 and any donation is very much appreciated.
