We are honored this year to have been selected as one of five local Austin charities to be sponsored by the Shoreline Caleb 5K run/fundraiser! LaunchPad (LP) officially began as a 501c3 in the spring of 2008. LPs mission is to equip, empower and enrich the quality of life for disadvantaged youth and families and to build safe, productive and vital communities. LP serves an average of 130 students per week! We offer a wide range of programs for youth and their families that center on mentoring/modeling, character education, life-skills, drug-free living, academics, leadership and parent education.
Who do you run for? We are running to ensure our important work can continue in a Community with great need.
