In the spirit of Thanksgiving, this event benefits The Midnight Mission – an amazing organization that offers a path to self-sufficiency to those experiencing homelessness.
Instead of running off a meal, run to provide a meal to the thousands who are hungry. With the support of the UAE and our incredible community, we can make a difference in the lives of our homeless neighbors.
