Run with Ronnie!
Thank you to our friends at Heist for this amazing video:
Ronnie Goodman is a self-taught homeless artist and runner living in San Francisco. On July 27th he will run the Second Half of The San Francisco Marathon to raise funds and awareness for Hospitality House and their ongoing efforts in the city. Hospitality House’s mission is to build community strength by advocating policies and rendering services which foster self-sufficiency and cultural enrichment to make the heart of San Francisco a better place for us all. One example of their mission in action is the Community Arts Program (CAP), which provides a free-of-charge art studio, art guidance and supplies to community artists in San Francisco who otherwise wouldn't have the means to create art. Ronnie has been involved with the Community Arts Program for over ten years and will be creating an original piece of art to be raffled off in support of the Hospitality House and CAP.
Our goal is to raise $25,000. With these important funds, Hospitality House could provide our community with peer-led programs, buy art supplies for hundreds of artists, and help improve the well-being of San Francisco through many other services.
We encourage each of you to donate, and to support Ronnie and other runners leading up to Race Day by posting #RunWithRonnie whenever out training. Follow us on Facebook to learn more about Hospitality House.
