If you're a runner for sport, pleasure and fitness, your run is important but your destination may never be your goal - maybe your goal was to hit 5 miles, break your record pace, or make it to the end of the block. The destination wasn't the most important part of your run. Team LZF runners define the destination as social justice.
Team LZF defines our destination as a world where there is equity, justice and dignity for every individual.
Team LZF knows our destination has the means and ability to provide housing, food, and economic opportunity to all.
Team LZF defines our destination as social justice -- where people are empowered to make positive meaningful change for themselves and their communities.
Your support of Team LZF will allow The Lenny Zakim Fund to continue to support and strengthen programs that are addressing important issues in our communitites -- programs that provide English classes for new Americans, address and stop youth violence, build homes for low income families, and much, much more!
