Run, walk, or bike 4.2 miles (that’s a 5K + an extra mile) with us to support young people overcoming homelessness at Covenant House.
Runners, walkers, and bikers will raise critical funds to ensure that Covenant House continues providing safe shelter for youth facing homelessness during the pandemic. We suggest setting your personal fundraising goal at $100, providing two days of medical supplies for our front-line team working around-the-clock to keep youth healthy.
On September 12, we will gather virtually for an opening ceremony before taking to the streets from coast-to-coast. You can track your training miles and final run on your fundraising page to share your progress and join in the friendly competition. Which coast is the best coast? We’ll find out!
SLEEP OUT FOR ONE NIGHT … SO HOMELESS YOUTH DON’T HAVE TO.
The Sleep Out Movement is an opportunity for all of us to come together and make an immediate and lasting impact on the homeless young people who live at Covenant House. It’s about showing our youth unconditional love and absolute respect – proving that you care enough about them to be uncomfortable for one night, to be vulnerable so they can be safe.
The funds raised by Sleep Out participants are put to work immediately, keeping the lights on and the doors open for the thousands of young people who will seek our help in CA this year. Our youth are changed by every interaction with someone who cares, and their dreams become a little more reachable every time they hear, “you can do it. I believe in you.” The Sleep Out offers every participant the chance to be someone who cares. Next Sleep Out scheduled for Fall 2020!
From individuals, to companies, to faith-based organizations, Covenant House needs your help! Unlike many volunteer opportunities, we want you to do what you love to do… just do it with our youth, either individually or with a group of your friends or co-workers.
