We have all driven past the ever growing number of tent cities and homeless people in Los Angeles.
You see the desperation in their eyes. It looks like they haven't had a good meal in days. They haven't had a shower in so long. They don't even have a place to go to the bathroom privately. You hope that if they're sick they can see a doctor, knowing very well that it's nearly impossible to stay healthy and get care if you're on the streets with no money.
You wish you could help.
This fall we are raising money for the Alliance For Housing and Healing with our EXTREMELY fun Spartan Race team.
The Alliance provides the basic necessities of life – food and shelter – to people struggling with poverty, homelessness and HIV/AIDS and other chronic illnesses in Los Angeles County.
At the Phoenix Effect, we believe that everyone deserves a second chance at life. We also believe in our community and our ability to act and do good for others who are less fortunate. Do you?
Of course you do. That's why you're here.
But a Spartan Race???? Isn't that that crazy obstacle course race? That looks HARD!
Sure, but being homeless is much harder. Plus, we're going to teach you everything we know!
The Spartan Sprint is approximately 4-5 miles long and is held at Castaic Lake (about an hour or so away from LA). And no, its not the Tough Mudder. They don't electrocute you. There is never any pressure to do an obstacle that feels unsafe and if you don't like running you are more than welcome to walk the entire course.
Every weekend, we hold a FREE Saturday morning team practice at 7AM
These training sessions will incorporate strength related movements, endurance & conditioning, and mini obstacle challenges to prepare you for race day!
If you already are a member of TPE, you're in luck! Our next training cycle is SPARTAN themed to get you ready, shredded, strong and sexy for the race. YASSSS!
You do not need to be a member of the Phoenix Effect to participate. All are welcome and the Saturday 7AM practices will always be free of charge.
If you're not a member and you'd like to be, we have special deals for you as well!
Here's what being a team member entails
Don't miss this opportunity to get in the best shape of your life and raise money for an amazing organization!
LOOK GOOD. FEEL GOOD. DO GOOD.
3 Group Homes providing around-the-clock care for people living with HIV/AIDS.
Case Management for 1,500 clients annually.
140 Apartments for individuals and families living with HIV/AIDS and a secondary diagnosis.
