See Jane Run cares about your health and wants to help you remain active throughout the holiday season. We also care very much about helping women and children in need, and we know that you do too. 100% of the money and food donated to Miles for Meals with go directly to local shelters who provide safety and essential services to women and children who are victims of domestic abuse.
- San Francisco/Oakland - La Casa de las Madres: La Casa was California's first shelter dedicated to women and children escaping domestic violence and is located in San Francisco's Mission District. It offers an essential safety net for local women, teens, and children: a refuge, an advocate, a strong voice against domestic violence.
- Danville - Shepherd's Gate: Shepherd's Gate has helped more than 10,000 battered women and children over the past thirty years in Livermore. It provides a safe haven for women and their children who are homeless because of abusive relationships, addictions, loss of financial support, and other factors.
- Boise -Women's and Children's Alliance: The Boise Women's and Children's Alliance works to foster a community where individuals thrive in safe, healthy relationships. It provides safety, healing, and freedom to women and children who are victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.
