Covenant House is proud to join Team SoCalGas, United Way of Greater Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Rams at WalkUnitedLA (formerly HomeWalk) at Sofi Stadium on Saturday, Nov. 6.
Since 2007, HomeWalk, United Way’s annual 5K family run/walk to end homelessness, has brought together more than 130,000 people and raised over $10M that has helped move over 20,000 individuals into the safety of a home.
The new WalkUnitedLA is a family 5K run/walk to end poverty in Los Angeles County, to directly meet the needs of our most vulnerable neighbors and communities, especially Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) and those hit hardest by the pandemic. The focus of this event is expanding to align with the work across the root causes of poverty. We’ll be fundraising and raising awareness to:
Provide equitable and quality education to all students; and
Ensure greater economic mobility and increased access to opportunities for working families and individuals
