The Holy Half aims to make a difference in our community on behalf of the University of Notre Dame. We are proud to continue to support the following organizations for the 2022 race.
Our Lady of the Road
A drop in center in South Bend for people experiencing homelessness. At Our Lady of the Road, the Catholic Worker community offers breakfast, showers and laundry for about 130 people every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and on major holidays.
Misericordia offers a Chicago-based community of care that maximizes potential for persons with mild to profound developmental disabilities, many of whom are also physically challenged. By serving society’s most vulnerable citizens, Misericordia also serves the families who want the best for them, yet cannot provide it at home.
Girls On The Run Michiana
- Girls on the Run Michiana (GOTRM) primarily serves the girls and families of five counties in north-central Indiana including St. Joseph County. Its mission is to inspire 3rd - 8th grade girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident through a fun, interactive curriculum that creatively integrates running. Through Girls on the Run, small groups of girls are mentored by trained volunteer coaches in a 10-week afterschool program that directly and concretely addresses issues girls face in early adolescence. The program culminates in a vibrant community-wide 5K downtown South Bend.
