The plight of homeless mothers and children is very dear to Mathews’ heart, and is a cause he works tirelessly to improve. Thus, he is proud to sponsor an event that is not only enjoyable, but helps raise funds for the charitable foundation.
“I know first-hand what these moms endure because my mother and I were homeless for a short time when I was little,” said Mathews. “I wouldn’t have the life I have now if it wasn’t for my mom getting a helping hand and then doing everything she could to support me, even working three jobs. So I encourage all levels of runners to sign-up for the Bolt to the Q because not only will it be a good time, but we can also help families get the support they need.”
Only 3,000 entries will be accepted and limited space remains. Those who sign up by July 15th can enter for$40, while children 12 and under can sign up for the 1K Fun Run for just $15.
