We can all do something to help effect change on Sunday, June 9, 2013 when Run Home Chicago will be holding its second annual race to end homelessness. The Primo Center is hosting this event along with other nonprofits dedicated to fighting this issue. All funds that are raised will be used to provide emotional support resources, medical services, shelter upkeep and other operations that help homeless individuals, families and children reorder their lives and maintain stability.
Please plan to join us. The race day events, which will take place at Soldier Field, include a 10K race, a 5K race and a Kids’ Dash–a perfect family event that is active, outdoors and promotes a positive message to all ages. Things get underway at 8:00am for the 10K; 8:15 for the 5K; and 9:30 a.m. for the Kid’s Dash. Doors open at 7am, early birds can warm-up and hear pre-race inspirational speeches.
Nobody intends on being homeless–it’s not a last resort; it’s what happens when people hit rock-bottom. Run Home Chicago is a viable way to promote the fight against homelessness and poverty, expand awareness of the issues and raise funds to provide shelter and support services.
For more information regarding the Run Home Chicago races and registration, please call Shelley Cooper, 312/385-0565 or visit www.runhomechicago.com.
Celebrate spring with a traditional High Tea and help families who temporarily call the Primo Center for Women and Children home.
The Primo Center’s RedHot Board along with a generous host committee will once again gather Chicago’s most civic-minded and spirited to help end homelessness. This year’s event will highlight the Primo Center’s contributions in breaking the cycle of homelessness in families. RedHot High Tea VI will also feature summer accessories and fashion trends from premier designers. Proceeds from this purposeful and fun-filled event will help sustain the daily operations of the Primo Center.
High Tea will be served on
Sunday, May 5th from 2-5pm
