Overview


Mission Statement

Up and Running Again is an agent for changing lives.  We seek to bring hope to the hopeless and strength to the weak through the relationships, achievements, and discipline of a group running program.

We believe that the most powerful force on earth is the ability for broken lives to be mended through exposure to love and truth.  We are able to demonstrate that love and bring that truth to those in need because it has come to us through Jesus Christ. Up and Running Again provides a  tangible means to use that love and truth to transform lives.  

 

Background Statement

Up and Running Again was started in November of 2009, when 4 accountants decided to that they could make a difference in the lives of the homeless in Orange County by training the residents to run a half marathon. In February of 2010, thirteen residents successfully completed the Surf City Half Marathon and changed their lives forever.

As a part of this training the residents consistently claimed that if they could run a half marathon there should be nothing to stop them from getting a job or reconciling with their family.

In March of 2011, Up and Running Again was granted their 501(c)(3) status by the Internal Revenue Service.

This year we celebrated our 7 year anniversary with over 700 participants having successfully completed a half marathon. Many of our racers have gone on to get jobs and move out of the shelter. Several past participants have gone on to college.

Up and Running Again has also partnered with several other local non profits to train their students or residents. We are currently partnering with 6 nonprofits for the 2017 spring/fall season.


Impact Statement

  • As an organization, we have trained over 700 participants in completing their first half-marathon
  • Up & Running Again has expanded into new areas including  Tustin, Portland, Spokane, Seattle, Detroit, Las Vegas, San Diego. 
Some of our main goals for the coming year:
  • Expansion into new areas across the country, specifically 4 new sites in the coming year.
  • In 2017/18, we plan to run two training seasons in Orange County, San Diego, Long Beach and Las Vegas (fall and spring), each season having a minimum of 100 participants successfully completing the program.
  • Increase brand awareness and social media presence by 25%. 
  • Form at least 4 new partnerships with local churches in order to recruit and retain volunteers.
  • Evaluate runners participating in Up And Running Again's program by performing a physical assessment of their health before and after participating by measuring weight, percentage of body fat, mobility, and heart rate.
  • Hold a first annual golf tournament in 2017.
 
 

Needs Statement

  1. Volunteers: head coaches & assistant coaches at each program site
  2. Finances: $20,000 in the coming year to cover entry fees, shoe cost, and administrative expenses.
  3. Church partners: the support of local churches in order to continue funneling in new volunteers each season.
  4. Sponsors: individuals that are willing to sponsor our sites financially through our Crowdrise fundraising page (www.crowdrise.com/upandrunningagain)
  5. Donations: new/used shoes, athletic clothing, sports bras, sports nutrition, snacks, water, running gear, race entries, etc.

CEO Statement

From the pregnant, homeless and drug addicted woman to the abused child who as an adult joined a gang, became an addict and eventually found himself homeless, Up And Running Again has helped over 700 individuals such as these find value and self worth in their lives thru the simple act of training to accomplish a goal they never dreamed that they could possibly accomplish. Running a half marathon. Not only does it help their physical health, it also changes their mental outlook of how they view themselves and unlocks the endless possibilities for their lives. The biochemistry makes them feel good and changes negative behavior resulting in a more positive outlook as they look towards their future. To quote one our runners, " I never finished anything in my life, now I've run 13.1 miles and I know that I can do anything!"
