Supporting Second Chances: Second Chance 5K

2016-05-06 09:48:15

We believe in giving people second chances at Goodwill-Easter Seals, and this year we celebrated our nation’s first-ever National Re-Entry Week, April 24-30.

The grand finale (for our staff)? Participating in the Second Chance 5K run at St. Paul’s Concordia University on Sunday, May 1.

It was a bright and sunny – but chilly day at Concordia University, but 20 of our staff members and around three hundred total runners braved the cold to run in support of second chances.

While none of our entries “won” the run, we’d like to congratulate our own Joshua Davis (known here as JD) for his 3rd place finish.

Three of our caped runners, with our 3rd place finisher, JD, in the center.

It was an exciting day of hope for our participants and staff, and we can’t wait to run again in 2017!
