Running with the Homeless
We are also trying to get off the ground a project involving running with the homeless people from local shelters. The idea is that if people can show commitment to running then they can show commitment to work. Participants will be rewarded with free running kit (as an incentive to join) and then with work placements with local businesses if they run regularly for a period of time. We are looking for local businesses to partner with and for new/nearly new shoes/clothes to offer the participants.
