2nd Chance 5K

2nd Chance 5K

Sea Foam Stadium (map)

Join Prison Fellowship for a 5k run/walk on Sunday, April 22, to celebrate the month of April as Second Chance Month!  Come enjoy live music and an inspiring rally speaker and learn how to create meaningful second chances for those in need of a second chance.

About Second Chances

Every person has God-given dignity and potential. However, some 65 million Americans—or one in four adults—have a criminal record, which limits their access to education, jobs, housing, and other things necessary for a full and productive life. In addition to widespread social stigma, there are more than 48,000 documented legal restrictions that weigh down those with a criminal record. While many people find hope and a new identity behind prison walls, they lose it a few steps past the prison gate when faced with barriers that can seem insurmountable. We call this the "second prison."

Prison Fellowship seeks to unlock second chances so that people can reach their God-given potential. Together, we can expose and overcome the "second prison" of stigma and restrictions, challenge stereotypes of the formerly incarcerated, and restore hope for people who want to fully and freely contribute their gifts so their communities can flourish.  

The Second Chance 5Ks are community run/walk events that bring people together inside and outside of prison to raise awareness of the "second prison" and catalyze real, significant change in public attitudes and policies.
