Hope Starts Here 5k
May 20, 2023
The 2nd annual Hope Starts Here 5K – presented by Florida Capital Bank – is a great race for runners and walkers of all levels looking for a route steeped in Jacksonville history and benefitting an amazing cause. A lovely trek incorporating the Emerald Trail, the course begins and ends at Operation New Hope which is housed in one of Springfield’s most iconic buildings.
Proceeds from the Hope Starts Here 5k will benefit Operation New Hope, where we believe that we are all better than our worst mistake, worst day, or worst decision. For 24 years, we have worked to build a stronger community by creating opportunities for people with a criminal history to realize second chances by reconnecting to the workforce. Funds raised will be used to provide workforce training, mental health services, and job placement for people affected by the criminal justice system.
