Every year, a group of passionate, community minded folks come together to raise funds for our police diversion and restorative justice in education programming. Over the past five years, dedicated runners, walkers and fundraisers have raised over $70,000 for participants.
While COVID-19 has put a damper on in person meetings, you can still show your support by fundraising and running an individual race. We invite you to join Team NSRJ and help us reach our goal of $25,000. Will you please join team NSRJ?
More than ever, you can help raise much-needed funds to match the increased demand for our services due to COVID-19. We are seeing an increased need for our services, from children, youth and adults across our North Shore community.
