A Letter from our President
Welcome to our internet home where information about our events, programs and services
are at your fingertips.
We Run Twelve began its operation by addressing the weight
loss issues plaguing our community and grew into more than just a running/walking
club but an organization of many resources. We are residents born and raised near
Roosevelt Rd (1200 South) who want more for our communities, like: programs to stimulate
the minds of our children, resources to assist our parents, zero vacant lots and
buildings, more affordable housing and thriving small businesses.
Many of us can remember when Sears, Roebuck and Co. was within walking distance;
softball, skating and bowling were weekly activities for the children and Great America
was a much anticipated annual trip, just to name a few. We can also remember when
the children had a place to play and different events and tournaments were the norm.
Nowadays, this is not the case; We Run Twelve wants to bring back those activities
plus more. We want to give back to our community and make a difference in the place
we call home.
Our journey at We Run Twelve is just beginning and we are already receiving positive
feedback. In the coming months, we are planning many activities, events and programs
that focus on health, education, job training and physical fitness. As We Run Twelve
continue to evolve, we welcome your support and believe through our partnership,
we will make a difference in our community and the lives of those we serve.
Tammie Allen, President and Chief Executive Officer
