This year's annual Penguin Random House Global Walk will support The Reset Foundation! On Friday, June 12, 2015, Penguin Random House employees will walk — in teams and individually — along the Hudson River Walk. Everyone who participates in the Penguin Random House Global Walk can fundraise until the morning of the walk and compete for fun prizes.
The Reset Foundation is opening a network of campuses to advocate for a national mindset shift about justice and poverty. The idea is simple: instead of serving time in a dehumanizing prison environment, a sentenced young adult lives at a Reset campus, focused on academics, career preparation, and healthy living. Reset's second campus will open in New York City and serve young men who would have otherwise been sent to prison. All funds raised by Penguin Random House will directly support The Reset Foundation's New York campus.
Together, Penguin Random House and The Reset Foundation can help break down barriers and open doors for young people across New York. And by shifting the life trajectories of young people in prison, we shift the trajectories of entire families and communities. For more information, please visit www.theresetfoundation.org.
