Commit to justice and run with us!

This year Open Hands Legal Services will begin a running club. Our members will meet twice a month to fellowship, run and share in our vision to see all lives transformed by the power of justice and hope. You can join by registering here. If you join as a $35 monthly donor, you will receive an athletic t-shirt. We look forward to running with you!
