Impact

  Just as the legend says that St. Patrick chased the snakes out of Ireland, Chasing Snakes is chasing homelessness out of our community. Since 2009 the race has donated $60,000 to Family Promise of Greater Johnson City (formerly IHN) directly serving homeless families and children in need -- keeping them united, keeping them sheltered, keeping them positive, keeping them job-focused, with the ultimate goal of helping them be self-sufficient.

Year 1 2009 (10K only) 325 participants. Donated $3,700.
