Featured Need

Transportation for Inner-City Youth


Run the Race Club




Many of our “Racers” live too far to walk to the Center and if they can walk, they are walking in dangerous neighborhoods. Most of their parents do not have cars, etc. We transport children in the inner city to The Run The Race Center so they can be in a safe, loving environment that encourages them in their academic, spiritual, emotional and physical development. We hope to raise enough money to cover the expense of a 12 passenger van. The expected result is that more and more children in the inner city will get homework help, food, meals, clothes, art, music, sports and love from the many volunteers of The Run The Race Club. The fundraisers and mailing solicitations throughout the year will cover other costs: insurance, repairs, gas and hourly wage for our driver.
