Skid Row Marathon

Sponsored by Hughes Charitable Foundation

When Judge Craig Mitchell visited the Midnight Mission on Skid Row in L.A. in 2012, he was asked if he could think of any way to contribute. The judge was an avid runner, and he worked nearby. So he offered to start a run club in the shelter. What he didn’t know was just how profoundly running would change so many lives. As the club’s members – a motley group of homeless drug addicts and criminals – train together to run marathons, they learn to dream big as they are re-acquainted with their own dignity. Uplifting and entertaining! Winner Best Doc at Napa Film Fest. 85 min. USA. Watch the trailer here
