What are you doing April 27th? Grab your running shoes and join the Bright Beginnings’ 5k! Each year the Junior League of Washington hosts this race for Bright Beginnings. Bright Beginnings is a nonprofit organization that was established by the Junior League in 1990. It offers early education programs for homeless infants and toddlers in Washington D.C. Bright Beginnings offers full-day, year-round, developmentally-appropriate early childhood education services for infants and children up to the age of five years old at no cost to the families. It offers health and wellness programs, parenting classes, and extended care for parents who work nontraditional hours or are in school. This organization is life changing for families facing hardship and times of transition.
