Special thanks to Fit Right NW for blessing 20 men and women in our programs with new running shoes for an upcoming half marathon race!
Here at Portland Rescue Mission, we offer several programs to help men and women get their lives back on track. Our Link and Connect programs help men and women find stability as they look for jobs and independent housing. The New Life Ministry is a 12-month program to help people overcome addictions.
In each of these programs, we strive to offer comprehensive services to improve every aspect of a resident’s life. We’ve found that physical fitness is a vital component to a healthy life, and thanks to a partnership with Up And Running Again, our residents now have the opportunity to train and compete in a half marathon race during their time with us.

Our residents learn that if they can train to run a half marathon, they can truly do anything with their lives. It’s critically important that each participant has proper running gear for the months of arduous training it takes to be prepared for the race. We are so thankful to Fit Right NW for their generous donation of running shoes. Their support, along with our partnership with Up And Running Again, has immensely helped our residents on their journey to a new life!
