The First Global Virtual RUN/WALK To End Homelessness begins this weekend.
The Safe Haven Foundation is organizing the 10th annual event, and Neli Vazquez Rowland, president and co-founder of Safe Haven, joined ABC 7 Chicago Saturday to talk about it.
Proceeds will go to support helping to prevent and to transform lives from homelessness to self-sufficiency with pride and purpose. The event begins Saturday and goes through July 26.
Admission is $30 for basic and $45 for VIP.
