Hope House 5K goes the distance

Event benefited free self-sufficiency programs for teen moms

Posted

A crowd 350 strong showed up at the fourth annual Hope House 5K and Fun Run, held on May 6, at Lake Arbor Park in Arvada. The race, which raised awareness and support for Hope House of Colorado’s self-sufficiency programs for teen moms, was also an official BolderBoulder qualifying event.

Micai Shoots, 14, was the overall winner of the adult male division with a time of 19 minutes and 50 seconds. Emily Naegle won the adult female division at 22 minutes and 21 seconds.

“We really appreciate the support that Arvada has shown us since we opened our doors 14 years ago,” said Lisa Steven, founder and executive director of Hope House. “When the community shows our teen moms that they believe in them, it encourages them as they work hard toward economic self-sufficiency.”

Hope House is an Arvada-based nonprofit organization that offers free self-sufficiency programs to parenting teen moms. For more information on Hope House, visit hopehouseofcolorado.org.
