My Story…

Hola! My family is running the 5k! Not just because we're crazy, weird and love healthy competition(my mother ran a 23:40 5k a month ago), but because homelessness is an social issue with personal significance, having been homeless a few years while I was in middle and high school. Thankfully, with the hard work of my mother and help from local organizations, we were able to move onto stable living conditions, not everyone is this lucky. There are so many reasons, causes, instigators for homelessness, and there is no one word run reason answer. help us acknowledge and aid this cause, and participate in our thanksgiving festivities in a way that acknowledges our own complicated past.

Donate to help Fernando raise money for Turkey Trot LA’s fundraising campaign.
