2nd Annual Be a Hero for the Homeless Virtual 5k Walk/Run

Joshua's House Hospice

Back Event Sep 1, 2021 @ 12 pm

Local nonprofit, Joshua’s House Hospice for the terminally ill homeless, is excited to hold its Be a Hero for the Homeless Virtual 5k Walk / Run again in 2021! Set for September 1 – 15, runners and walkers from the greater Sacramento community, and beyond, are encouraged to join in.

Each registrant can choose their course and means of completing the 5k. They merely need to register completion of the 3.1 miles by end of day on September 15, 2021. It really couldn’t be easier to do something fun & healthy, all while raising funds for a worthy cause! Registrants are encouraged to involve family, friends, and colleagues – walk or run together, or even challenge each other.

The fundraising goal is $100,000, all of which will go toward furnishings for the campus that is set to open in late 2021. Items needed for the Village range from refrigerators, stoves, washers and dryers, hospital beds, to clothing, food, personal items and much more. These supplies are crucial to the success of Joshua’s House Hospice. The organization is a 501c3 nonprofit and has the support of Sacramento Mayor Darrel Steinberg, Congresswoman Doris Matsui, Sacramento City Council member Jeff Harris, and many other local dignitaries. Health partners include Kaiser Permanente, Sutter Health, UC Davis Health, and Dignity Health.
