Teen Moms Finish Strong!

Twelve teen moms and 13 staff members successfully completed the Graffiti 5K -- a FIRST for these young moms! They were led by Patricia, a graduate of Hope House's Mentoring Program. 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 the crowd doused them with colored powder!

Our teen moms did more than invest in their own fitness -- they also helped us to meet our matching grant and raise $3,000 for Hope House. A big thank you to our amazing teen moms and our wonderful sponsors!
