On Saturday, November 17th, at 8:00 am, we are sponsoring the Carpenter’s Shelter Run for Shelter 10K in Alexandria, VA. To join the 10K Race to End Homelessness, visit the Run for Shelter 10K website. As a valued MRIS customer, you also have a special promo code to use when registering to save $5: 2012MRIS.
Carpenter’s Shelter’s mission is to end and prevent homelessness through services, education, and advocacy. Each year Carpenter’s Shelter serves over 1,000 homeless and formerly homeless individuals and families, providing much more than just a roof to live under. Carpenter’s Shelter works with each resident to create an individualized action plan to get them back on their feet and into permanent housing.
One week later, at 9:00am on Saturday, November 24th, we are one of the proud sponsors of the 4th annual DrumStix Dash 8K in Fairfax, VA. All ages are welcome!
100 percent of the DrumStix Dash 8K net proceeds will be donated to Housing & Community Services of Northern Virginia. The funds will be used to assist Fairfax County residents who are in housing distress with counseling services. More and more people in NoVa are having crises about where they are going to live. Support is needed to help transform many lives of people in need right here, and right now. Please come out, bring the whole family, and have fun during this Thanksgiving weekend race.
Not sure if you can run that distance? Don’t worry! Both events feature shorter races and fun runs for adults and children. We look forward to seeing you at one (or both, if you’re a avid runner) of these great events later this month!
