$12 for One Entry in the Stand Up and Run 5K ($30 Value)

Part of Homeless Children's Awareness Week, the second annual Stand Up and Run 5K takes place on Saturday, October 20, at 8:30 a.m. After assembling at the North Park boathouse, running or walking racers set out on a 3.1-mile course through the park to benefit the Homeless Children’s Education Fund. All participants receive a free T-shirt and other goodies.

Homeless Children’s Education Fund

Retiring as the Executive Director of the Allegheny Intermediate Unit after spending more than 40 years in education, Dr. Joseph Lagana couldn't resign himself to just wile away his new excess of free time. With firsthand knowledge of the effects of homelessness on the region's schools, Joe funneled his passion and efforts into creating the Homeless Children’s Education Fund, a nonprofit committed to the advocacy, education, and direct assistance of children experiencing homelessness in Allegheny County. Since its beginning as a humble learning center—just three computers in a closet—Homeless Children’s Education Fund has grown to include 11 facilities where children and their parents can access the Internet as well as find much-needed support through emergency shelters and transitional housing.
