Proceeds from the Homeless for the Holidays 5K Run / 2.5K Walk events go to the Pennies From Kevan Foundation, a 501(c)3 tax exempt charitable foundation that provides funding and other resources to local agencies that support the needs of homeless adults, children and families.
Pennies From Kevan Foundation was inspired by Kevan Matthew Isaacs, a very special young man who had an innate sensibility and sensitivity toward other human beings. Kevan accepted people at face value and never judged them by their appearance or station in life.
Kevan willingly opened his door, his wallet and his heart to those in need, without expecting anything in return. He never looked away or was fearful of the homeless. His natural inclination was to talk to engage with them, try and help them, and 'humanize' them any way he could.
Kevan's view of the world was simple: freely share your skills, knowledge and natural talents with other people. If everyone did this, we would all have what we need to live comfortably.
Kevan is deeply missed and we feel certain he would greatly appreciate your participation in these events in support of such an important and worthwhile cause.
Peace & Love, Pennies From Kevan Foundation and Kevan's Family
