DESCRIPTION

Benefiting A New Lease on Life

We are proud to announce our newest event - Leaves to Leases - benefitting A New Lease on Life. They have helped us support so many other nonprofits at our other races with the big teams they bring out so we wanted to pay it forward and build a race just for them!

A New Lease on Life assists those experiencing homelessness to get back on their feet through stable housing by providing an available apartment home at a reduced rate over a 12-24 month period. The program offers a hand up to those in need. Our purpose is to provide an essential need through stable housing thereby allowing these families to establish up to 2 years of positive rental history thereby allowing them to remain as market renters or in some instances to purchase a home of their very own.

Their Mission Statement: Empowering those who are experiencing homelessness by equipping them with opportunities to obtain stable housing.

Invite your friends and family to run together!

Leaves to Leases is part of Fit & Able's Free-for-All Race Series.

*** Due to the constantly evolving pandemic situation any specific changes to event operations for protecting participant health and safety in compliance with the most up-to-date recommendations and requirements will be emailed to all registered participants prior to the race. A virtual component is available for all races for those runners who aren’t comfortable racing in person yet but still want to participate in the event. ***
