For the 5th year in a row, School on Wheels is hosting its 5k Fun Run and Walk to benefit homeless children.
There are 1.6 million homeless children in the USA. Over 300,000 live in California. School on Wheels was founded in 1993 by a retired school teacher who believed that one person can make a difference in the life of a homeless child, by focusing on their education and providing weekly tutoring and support. Today, thousands of volunteer tutors throughout Southern California are providing that one-on-one weekly mentoring to children living in shelters, motels, cars, on the street or in group foster homes. As a charity they rely on donations and support from individuals and organizations that believe as they do that every child has the right to succeed in school. Join our team and help support this very worthy cause.
