Start/Finish Line Sponsor
"As a military veteran, I had survived the stresses of combat, but nothing prepared me for unemployment and homelessness. Before coming to Working Wardrobes, I was at the lowest point in my life. Here I received help with everything from interview skills to salary negotiation to a Microsoft Office certification. Most importantly, I was treated with dignity and respect and that empowered me and reminded me that my life will get better. Today, I am working as a case manager with a social service agency and living in my own apartment. I am so grateful!"
- Jose E., Marine Corps Veteran
Want to take a walk with us? Here’s how to get started:
Get started by click the "Register" button above.
Sign up to take a walk or run along Lakeview Park. What a beautiful way to start your morning!
Families are welcome! If you can push them for 5k, you can bring your kids along! The trail is wide but unpaved, so just be sure that you have a jogging style stroller with heavy-duty, mountain bike-type wheels. You will just need to start at the back of the pack at the start line to let our runners and fast walkers go first.
Become a Team Captain!!

"...Working Wardrobes surrounded me with other veterans that were in the same situation I was in. That alone made a huge difference in knowing that people did love and care about me."
