134 Reasons to Run for the Homeless in Loudoun

At least 134 people are homeless in Loudoun County, Virginia. At least, that’s the number of people identified during a homeless survey conducted by the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments in January 2016. Sixty-nine of those people were homeless with their families. These statistics are actually an improvement for Loudoun–one of the nation’s richest counties–but we won’t stop until homelessness is completely eradicated.

In the next few weeks, we’re hitting the pavement for the homeless.

For the fifth year in a row, we’ve partnered with three wonderful organizations to raise money for homeless shelters and organizations that support the homeless in the Loudoun County region.

We welcome runners and walkers to join us!
