A Message from our President
A path to success
The fear and desperation of homelessness. The sheer exhilaration and sense of accomplishment after crossing the finish line of a goal you never dreamed possible.
This transition from one extreme to another is happening right now as some of Orange County’s neediest are actively stepping out from the shadows of homelessness and into a running program that is transforming the trajectory of their lives one mile at a time.
Up & Running Again, a Christian non-profit organization, was formed in 2010 to assist homeless individuals and at-risk youth improve their lives by training for, and completing, a half-marathon. In its first year, 19 individuals completed the journey from homelessness to 2-time half-marathon finishers after going through the Up & Running Again training program.
