We’re Running for justice!

Causa Justa :: Just Cause is taking part in the Oakland Running Festival on March 26-27! Last year’s marathon was so much fun (check out the sweet photos) we decided to do it again this year! As we gear up for another year of fighting for justice, we are training to run the 5K and the Half Marathon as a contingent. Together we’re going to celebrate Oakland’s rich history of community resistance in the Fruitvale, Chinatown and West Oakland neighborhoods.

We have even developed a 10-week training program to share with half-marathoners and are planning celebrate post-marathon with a CJJC-style party.

If you are interested in joining the team and running the 5K, Half Marathon, or Full Marathon, or rallying the wee ones for the Kids’ Fun Run, register today by clicking here. The vast majority of our all-stars last year had never run in a marathon before, so newcomers are welcome. Contact alia@cjjc.org to sign up!
