What We Do

RunningWorks promotes sport-for-social change. Our programs are designed to encourage individuals and families to rediscover the power of teamwork, discipline, respect and confidence.

Our mission is to use sport to empower individuals and families to break cycles of abuse, neglect, poverty and homelessness. The vast majority of our team members are either homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. In addition to providing a running program, we also offer supportive services to help team members get on their feet - being in good health, securing jobs paying livable wages and finding permanent housing. There are many valuable skills that can be accrued through the sport of running. It teaches discipline. It improves health and wellness. Running promotes determination and willpower. It also boosts self-esteem and provides a positive outlet for relieving stress and frustration.
