The Hope House 5K & Fun Run is scheduled for Saturday, May 4, at Lake Arbor Park in Arvada. Last year over 300 people showed up for this event that is both family-friendly and competitive as it is an official BolderBOULDER qualifier race.
Hope House is an Arvada-based nonprofit that offers free self-sufficiency programs to parenting teen moms. Proceeds from the race will support these programs, which include residential, GED and college and career.Designed for runners, walkers and competitive racers, the Hope House 5K features a paved trail, and the fun run will take place after the official 5K.
The morning also includes activities for kids, including an obstacle course, face painting and the ever-popular Diaper Dash.
“We are so honored by the support that Arvada has shown us since the day we first opened our doors 16 years ago,” said Lisa Steven, founder and executive director of Hope House. “When the community shows our teen moms that they believe in them, it encourages them as they work hard toward independence and self-sufficiency.”
Hope House of Colorado is currently expanding and anticipates opening its new Resource Center in Arvada later in 2019. The new facility will allow the organization to serve up to 450 teen moms annually.
