What are Purpose Runs?
In life there will be challenges but the blessings that we have been bestowed should make us want to make a difference in the lives of those who have encountered a slip from good fortune. Purpose Run was created to incorporate purpose with running – making a difference and showing others how to make an impact with even a donation of time for self-love and self-preservation. We originate 5K and 10K races across the country (e.g. NYC, Atlanta, Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles and New Orleans to name a few) to raise awareness to issues affecting each city with a charitable benefactor that provides great impact to eradicate the issues.
Where does the race start and finish?
