Dear Friends, 

A New Year is upon us, and the possibilities are endless! At Thomas House, we love the New Year because it symbolizes a fresh start for our families. 

Now is the time when many of us embark on our New Year goals. Today we are looking at Thomas House's friends and supporters, who would like to improve their fitness. 
  • Are you trying to lose weight?
  • Do you want to beat your PR?
  • Would you like to be able to walk 3 miles without stopping?
  • Are you trying to improve your overall health and stress levels?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, congrats! You are making the first step towards a healthier, happier you. 

Now that you have made your goal, it's time to develop a great plan! Register for the Run 4 Homeless Children 2K, 5K, 10K, or Walk-A-Thon now so you can maintain that motivation!

RunForHomeless2015 Finishers Medal
This medal could be yours! 

This medal of success means that you finished either the 2K, 5K, or 10K
It means that you have helped a homeless family with children in their quest for employment and their own housing. 

At the end of race day March 28, 2015, you can sleep well because of your physical feat in completing the race and because of the knowledge that you helped provide a warm, safe bed for a formerly homeless family.
