2015 RFYL Beneficiary:
We are delighted to announce that all proceeds for the 2015 PNWU Students’ Run For Your Life 5K will be donated to Rod’s House, a resource-center for homeless youth in Yakima!
According to the National Health Care for the Homeless Council, “high stress, unhealthy and dangerous environments, and an inability to control food intake often results in visits to emergency rooms and hospitalizations which worsen overall health.”
Because of its impact on short- and long-term health, we are proud to support an organization that provides services specific to the needs of homeless youth in our community.
In addition to helping Rod’s House address the youth’s immediate needs, event proceeds will help bolster Rod’s House Works! – an educational and employment training program that “teaches youth that they can change their situations when they study, work hard, and believe there is hope.” For more information about Rod’s House, visit their Website or Facebook Page!
