Rauner attends Run to End Homelessness

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Republican candidate for governor Bruce Rauner was at the Run to End Homelessness Sunday.

This was the fourth year of the 5K run. A Safe Haven Foundation held the event in Douglas Park.

Rauner has been involved in the Safe Haven Foundation since its inception and chatted with participants before the run.

"It's a very important cause," he said. "I was honored to be one of the early angel investors in helping get A Safe Haven founded. And it's a great organization. They do wonderful work helping end homelessness, and provide support service, transition service, especially our veterans."

Right after the race, A Safe Haven hosted its first-ever Veteran Stand Down, which helped vets in need of clothes, healthcare services, education and other services.
