At Duluth 30096
Come run through the great landscape of Downtown Duluth! We have a new certified course that exemplifies the life of a single parent in college-fast paced! Single parents face overwhelming barriers to overcome poverty and become self-sufficient. With the economy being what it is, a college education is crucial and almost required for the low-income single parent family to succeed. This course will be a great uphill and downhill course that will be sure to challenge you just as these parents are challenged! It’s a run/walk event so come out whether it’s your first 5K or you are trying to set that PR!
Proceeds from this event will benefit H.O.P.E, Inc. (Helping Other People be Empowered) which is a tax-exempt 501(c)3 nonprofit organization serving single parents and their families working to obtain a college degree and break the cycle of poverty. Please click here to register online!
