Newark Homeless Annual Steps of Change

Steps of Change is our annual fundraiser for Newark Homeless Outreach, a project of OhioCAN. Newark Homeless Outreach strives to embrace, educate, and empower those whose lives have been impacted by homelessness, poverty, and/or addiction. We currently serve approximately 90-150 people each week with food, clothing, medical supplies, hygiene, and more. This event will be fun for all with a 3-mile run/ 1 mile memory walk (Stroller and pet friendly) to raise awareness to the unsheltered population and those lives lost to addiction in Licking County, OH. If you have lost a loved one to the disease of addiction, you may bring a pair of shoes for the memorial on the courthouse steps. There will be a bounce house and many fun things for children, live music, food, raffles, resource tables, and much more surprises.  Special appearance by Bluey and the NFD will have a fire truck on hand for the kids to tour.

You can sign up for 3 mile run/1 mile walk via or fill out form below and submit.  

If you would like to be a sponsor- please reach out to Stephanie Vanbibber or me.  Sponsors will have their name on the back of the race shirts, on all social media, our webpage, event brochure and sponsorship board at the event.
