Run for Shelter

With this beautiful weather we’re having, runners and walkers alike are hitting the trails!  And that being said, the next time you’re craving that exhilarating run in the warm sunshine, or that leisurely stroll around the block, you could be raising money for an amazing cause with every step!

Run for Shelter is a premier family friendly fundraiser for My Father’s House.  The event will include a fun run/walk, April 6th, 9am-12pm at Good Shepherd Community Church, 28986 SE Haley Rd, Boring, OR.

This beautiful course winds its way down a scenic closed road, making it great for all ages and fitness levels to participate.  There’s races for kids and a “bling your rain boots” contest, both of which are sure to be exciting for everyone.

Run for Shelter, a fun run to benefit My Fathers House

Every step benefits My Father’s House which provides for the immediate needs of their residents through housing, food, clothing, and physical and emotional safety.  No intervention can take place in the lives of homeless families without these elements in place.  By addressing immediate needs and providing a safe space, they eliminate environmental stressors and create an opportunity for impact in individual lives. The heart of the My Father’s House program lies in the belief and practice that true healing, true change, can take place best within community

Sign up today and remember every dollar from this event goes to support homeless families in crisis.  So, “Bling your Boots” and join us!  It’s going to be a great family fun event come rain or shine!  For more information please go to and click on “Run for Shelter”.
