Announcing the Justice Run

The Denver Street School is excited to announce our participation in the 2014 Justice Run!

The Justice Run is a 10K, 5K, and Family Walk/Run that will be taking place on October 5th, 2014 at Hudson Gardens in Littleton.

The Denver Street School's new Hope Campus has been chosen as one of the beneficiaries of the funds raised by the race this year.

Sign up to support DSS by running or walking at www.thejusticerun.com today!

OR if running isn't quite your cup of tea, you can sponsor our Founder, Tom Tillapaugh, as he runs the race himself by clicking here!

We hope to see you there!
