Race Against Poverty is an opportunity for our community to take a stand together against the poverty that grips many of our own and stifles our full potential. All proceeds will go directly to continue the work of Support Circles. 1 out of 5 Franklin County families cannot meet basic living expenses without the help of assistance programs. Support Circles is a collaborative effort working to build relationships that inspire and equip our community to overcome poverty. Through this initiative, we are seeing community members move into long term stability as their dreams become reality! Support Circles work to empower families to break the cycle of poverty and build long-term stability, so they no longer need to rely on assistance.
