About This Event

Miles of Hope 1M/5K/10K/15K
Building Hope Across Multiple Cities

Following up with our November 2019 event to honor veterans, NFL Linebacker Tahir Whitehead and Run Life’s Course will be presenting the Miles of Hope 5K 1M challenge open to kids and adults. This year’s event will run from 8/1/2020 — 8/31/2020.

All net proceeds will be donated to Back On My Feet which focuses on providing a second-chance for those who have fallen on hard times (especially veterans) and need shelter, job training, financial literacy, career guidance and placement, and housing placement within 60 – 120 day time frames.
