The Hope Starts Here 5K is a great race for runners and walkers of all levels looking for a beautiful route and benefitting an amazing cause. A lovely trek around Lake Baldwin in the heart of Orlando, the Hope Starts Here 5K helps build safer communities, stronger economies, and more stable families.
Proceeds from the Hope Starts Here 5k will benefit Operation New Hope, where we believe that we are all better than our worst mistake, worst day, or worst decision. For over 20 years, we have worked to build a stronger community by creating opportunities for people with a record to realize second chances by reconnecting to the workforce, their families, and our communities. Funds raised will be used to provide career readiness training, mental health services, and job placement to help people become successful and self-sufficient after involvement with the criminal justice system.
We hope you will join us for this great community event!
