About This Activity

Rode to Home is sponsoring a race as a fundraiser for Family Promise of Slidell.

The race will start and finish at the St. Tammany Parish Fishing Pier. The course is out and back with a small loop in the middle. You will finish the race over looking the lake at the foot of the twin span bridge. This will be a very unigue race finish. Join us in our mission to support Family Promise of St. Tammany Parish.

The Family Promise mission is to help homeless and low-income families achieve sustainable independence.

We recognize that poverty is a multifaceted problem that requires a multifaceted response. We respond by integrating educational outreach, smart programming, effective policies, and the hands-on work of thousands of volunteers. We provide food, shelter, and support services for homeless families. We provide advice and advocacy for at-risk families to prevent their becoming homeless. And we educate people about poverty and the means to combat it.

We accomplish our work through independent Affiliates in 41 states (and counting). We work community-by-community, guided by experts . . . the people who live there and know it best. At the heart of each Affiliate is an Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN). The IHN marshals existing local resources to provide for homeless families as they work to get back on their feet. These resources include available congregational spaces, donated goods, and - most importantly - volunteers.

Participating in this race will provide funds used to accomplish this mission.
