PRISON FELLOWSHIP'S VIRTUAL 5K
There are people in your community living with the burden of a criminal record. Even after they have paid their debt to society, their past limits their access to education, jobs, housing, voting, and other things they need to lead a full and productive life.
We all want to be treated with dignity and have the opportunity to reach our potential. Show your support for second chances by participating in our virtual 5K! No matter where you are, you can run or walk for yourself, a loved one, or a neighbor who has been affected by incarceration.
Are you ready to get moving for second chances? Register today!
HOW DOES A VIRTUAL 5K WORK?
Run any time, any place, at any speed you want during the month of April. You can run outside, use the treadmill, organize your own race, or participate in an existing local race.
Register your support and receive your special race packet, including a runner's medal, race bib, tips and recommendations, and more.
Engage online with other participants by posting photos or videos, raising money or awareness for second chances, or any number of other community activities.
70 MILLION AMERICANS
HAVE A CRIMINAL RECORD
Every person has God-given dignity and potential. However, 1 in 3 adults has a criminal record, which limits their access to housing, education, employment, and other things necessary for a full and productive life.
44,000 LEGAL RESTRICTIONS
In addition to widespread social stigma, there are more than 44,000 documented legal restrictions that weigh down those with a criminal record. While many people find hope and a new identity behind prison walls, they lose it a few steps past the prison gate when faced with barriers that can seem insurmountable.
LET'S MAKE APRIL A CELEBRATION OF SECOND CHANCES!
WE BELIEVE IN SECOND CHANCES
Prison Fellowship® launched Second Chance™ Month to raise awareness about legal obstacles faced by the 1 in 3 American adults with a criminal record, breakdown barriers, and create second chance opportunities. We all want to be treated with dignity and have the opportunity to reach our potential—and after making a wrong choice, we want a chance to make it right and rebuild.
Together, we can unlock brighter futures for millions of Americans!
