What We Do

RunningWorks is a grassroots nonprofit organization that provides wellness initiatives, life skill development, social support and case management to promote healthy lifestyle habits.

We know that individuals experiencing homelessness and poverty are more likely to have health disparities and negative health outcomes, so RunningWorks’ has created a unique model of using sport, education and social support to assist Team Members with their Health and Mental Wellness, with developing a Community of Support, and building bridges to increase Access and Opportunity.

We envision a community where everyone has the opportunity to move beyond their comfort zone and prosper as their healthiest self.
