The Arlington-Alexandria Coalition for the Homeless, Inc. does more than offer shelter to homeless people, it provides them with a foundation to rebuild their lives. Created in 1985 by concerned citizens of Arlington and Alexandria, AACH works in coordination with public agencies, businesses and community groups to give homeless people the support, shelter, counseling and employment training they need to regain self-sufficiency.
Join us Saturday, October 11 at John Carlyle Square in Old Town Alexandria for the 4th Annual Rock and Stroll to End Homelessness! In addition to the 10K, 5K and 1K Fun Run/Walk, there will be a Zumbathon, yoga, cornhole, a hula hoop jam, kids' activities, food and music. This event, the successor to Fannie Mae's Help the Homeless Walkathon, benefits 6 nonprofits this year: AACH, Good Shepherd Housing, Wesley Housing, ALIVE!, New Hope Housing and Community Lodgings.
Come out to run, fest, and/or volunteer!
