Description:

Join us Saturday, January 7th, 2017 at

Woodley Park in Van Nuys, CA!

Get your New Year's resolution started on the right foot by participating in a 5K/10K run/walk that also supports a great cause.

Nationally, about 20,000 youth, aged 16 or older, make the transition from foster care to legal emancipation each year.  Over 4,000 youth “age out” of California’s foster care system each year.  The terms “aged out” or “emancipated” describe foster youth who are discharged from the foster care system when they attain a certain age.  According to the Children’s Advocacy Institute, 65% of foster youth “age out” of the system without a place to live, less than 3% go to college, 51% are unemployed, and “aged out” females are 4 times more likely to receive public assistance than the general population.

This is a wonderful opportunity to help support emancipated foster youth.  Proceeds from the race benefit Journey House,  “whose sole purpose is to assist emancipated foster youth to meet their independent living needs.”  You may find additional information about Journey House at www.journeyhouseyouth.org.
