LA Marathon

Hope of the Valley CEO and CFO, Ken Craft and Rowan Vansleve will once again run the LA Marathon on Sunday March 8th for the sole purpose of raising much needed funds to open two new shelters (185 beds) and a brand new Navigation Center in the next 6 months.  Just one look at Rowan and Ken and it is very apparent that neither one of them are "runners".  Nevertheless, they will put their bodies thru the grueling 26.2 miles all for the purpose of funding necessary programs that address the humanitarian crisis of homelessness in Los Angeles. Hope of the Valley relies on the generosity of its donors.  Please sponsor Ken and Rowan as they "move their feet so others can eat!".  Every donation matters so please be as generous as you can!
