Hope Starts Here 5k

Hope Starts Here 5k May 20, 2023

The 2nd annual Hope Starts Here 5K – presented by Florida Capital Bank – is a great race for runners and walkers of all levels looking for a route steeped in Jacksonville history and benefitting an amazing cause. A lovely trek incorporating the Emerald Trail, the course begins and ends at Operation New Hope which is housed in one of Springfield’s most iconic Klutho buildings. The Hope Starts Here 5K helps Jacksonville build safer communities, stronger economies, and more stable families.

Proceeds from the Hope Starts Here 5k will benefit Operation New Hope, where we believe that we are all better than our worst mistake, worst day, or worst decision. With over 24 years of experience providing job readiness training and reentry services in Florida, Operation New Hope is a leader in the field. Their Ready4Release, Ready4Work, and Ready4Success programs improve reentry and employment outcomes by creating opportunities for people to become productive, responsible citizens after involvement with the criminal justice system. Operation New Hope builds stronger communities through strategic partnerships with local businesses, community-based organizations, workforce alliances, educational institutions, and the judicial system. Their programs save Florida taxpayers millions of dollars by reducing recidivism, improving public safety, reuniting families, and encouraging self-sufficiency.
