Hope House to Run the Graffiti 5K

Hope House to Run the Graffiti 5K!

Eleven teen moms and 13 staff members signed up for the Graffiti 5K and will run their FIRST race as a team! They will be led by Patricia, a graduate of Hope House's Mentoring Program who lost 20 pounds this year.  Recently Patricia was a guest speaker at one of our Mom's Night Out classes, teaching our teen moms the importance of self-care. Inspired, our girls decided to band together to run the Graffiti Run, a 5K held at Elitch Gardens on April 28th - where onlookers will douse them with colored powder!
 
You can donate $20 and support a teen mom who is training hard to care for herself and to support Hope House! If Executive Director Lisa Steven finishes the race, an anonymous donor will match your gift, up to $1,500, essentially doubling your donation! Click here to donate now.
