Thank you for helping us continue this Chico tradition. As always, your funds make a difference in our community through supporting the Jesus Center which helps bring those suffering from isolation into community integration through transitional housing and vocational training programs.
In 2021 the Jesus Center moved and expanded its operations to Fair Street which now features beds for 60 men and women in a newly built Sabbath House and provides services and meals supporting these individuals. The Pathways Program helps streamline a path from hopelessness to full restoration.
The Run for Food started out in 2006 with just over 1,000 participants and now the event brings together 5,000 participants each year along with 75 businesses and 200 volunteers for a true community-wide event. Our 2020 event was our most unique event to date with a virtual run and livestream, but with your help - we made it a success and supported the cause! This year we are ready be back in Bidwell Park and enjoy this community celebration once again.
