In an effort to support a great program that has been on my heart for a couple of years now, I will be fundraising this racing season for The AIR Foundation out of Denver. It is a homeless ministry aimed at giving those without hope, hope through running.

AIR Endurance Running Program
Running for Purpose. Running for Hope.
The AIR Foundation (Activity Inspired Rehabilitation) addresses homelessness and addiction in the community through endurance running programs that support and inspire incremental athletic accomplishment and a positive connection with the community.
For many of AIR's participants, the running program represents new hope and, at times, the last hope. For many, drug addiction, alcoholism, and homelessness is the only life they've known. Many have been crippled by their addiction and have spent countless nights on the street. Most have lived life through a series of incomplete experiences; they didn't graduate high school or have a series of incomplete relationships including estranged parents, marriages, and children.
AIR works with the homeless and drug/alcohol afflicted population in our community by partnering with organizations who service adults and youth who are or have been homeless and/or have been afflicted with substance abuse. Through AIR, participants begin to set and achieve short, mid, and long-term goals. They begin to engage in a process of self-empowerment that requires self-accountability and responsibility. As they move through the program and realize achievements, they naturally begin to apply the skills of goal-setting and accomplishment to their relational, educational, and professional lives.
Please be part of this amazing community effort to change lives. The men, women, and children who participate in these programs are counting on your support to help keep these programs alive!
