Let's End Homelessness and Have Some Fun Running!

William Hoover

On Sunday, August 5th, I am participating in South Oakland Shelter’s 5th Annual End Homelessness Now 5k/10k. I have started a team to help South Oakland Shelter (SOS) raise money to end homelessness. I am committed to being a part of this amazing work and hope you will consider joining my team and efforts as well.

It’s hard to believe that on any given night, there are more than 3,000 homeless individuals and families in Oakland County, of which over 500 are children. The numbers are alarming and that is why SOS is working hard to change this.

In 2017, our congregations provided 11,114 nights of shelter and 33,324 meals to individuals and families experiencing homelessness.

This is huge progress, but there is still so much work to be done, and they need our help! Please consider making a donation today, or even signing up and joining me at the race on August 5th! No amount is too small, and whatever you can give will be greatly appreciated. Together we can end homelessness.

Thank you in advance for your support!

Now for the non-default message: SOS is an incredible organization because it not only provides for the homeless, but it gives them opportunities to get jobs and own houses, essentially providing a way to start a "regular" life. I love running, and I will take any chance I get to run and support my favorite organizations at the same time. If you'd like to run as well, consider joining the St. James Runners (we had very little time to think of a name) or just donate to my page.

Best,
- William
