2014 Run for FOCUS

Get ready to run for Focus, run for shoes, and run for health in this 1 mile/ 5k/10k benefit event!
This year, over 700 participants eager to run, jog, or walk will gather to not only fund a program which provides basic necessities such as shoes to children in various metropolitan areas around the nation, but also contribute to a healthier and more active community.
Through Operation Lace Up, the North American charity organization FOCUS (Fellowship of Orthodox Christians United to Serve) has partnered with a major American shoe company to distribute thousands of new athletic shoes to impoverished children in 28 metropolitan areas across the United States.
Come join us in a race around beautiful Lake Merced in San Francisco, CA! Participants will enjoy a flat running surface around the lake on a gorgeous day in the spring.
