Miles 4 Mileage 5K Walk/Run to raise funds for volunteer programs in Clackamas County

Lace up those running and walking shoes! Join Social Services of Clackamas County (SSCC) for the 4th annual Miles 4 Mileage 5K Run/Walk, which will take place Sunday, Sept. 28, 2014, at Clackamas Community College in Oregon City.

The charity event raises money to support the work of local volunteers transporting clients to essential, life-sustaining appointments through the Transportation Reaching People (TRP) and RSVP programs. In Clackamas County, the TRP program serves as a lifeline for many seniors and people with disabilities that have no transportation access, relying on over 100 volunteer drivers who serve more than 20,700 hours each year. Volunteers drive over 250,000 miles each year in their own vehicles to take Clackamas County residents to critical medical appointments, essential and life sustaining services and to social programs.
