On Saturday, February 9th, over 55 children under the age of 12, (including some of the children currently living at SLP), participated in the Race for the Place Fun Run to benefit St. Lawrence Place. Click below to view brief videos of the start line for the 1/4 mile, 1/2 mile, and 1 mile Fun Runs!

When you work for a non-profit, you live it. And so does your family.
My boys know and love St. Lawrence Place. They do school projects on the organization, ask for donations instead of birthday presents, and volunteer with friends to make lunches for the children’s program. Sometimes I wonder what’s going on in those heads as they walk around campus as though they (or their mama) run the place…and then it hits you in the oddest moment. That’s the moment when your two worlds collide.

A huge thank you to all the volunteers, sponsors, and participants that made the 2013 Race for the Place such a success. We had over 330 participants in the 5k and Fun Run! We also had a couple former SLP residents participate, as well as some current SLP residents and children.
