Course

The course is a 5k that winds gently through the neighborhood of Pleasant View. We meet in front of the Education Center at St. Joseph (10th St. and Ulysses St.) and walk to the race start/finish line at 10th St. and Torrey St. There is a water station at the halfway mark.


Fundraising

The funds raised by the Helping Hands Hustle benefit the Christian Action Guild, Golden Backpack Program, and Golden Rescue Fund. Since 1966, the Christian Action Guild has served the Golden Community by operating a food bank, thrift shop, and annual Santa Shop. The Golden Backpack Program provides weekend food assistance to more than 600 local students each year. Administered by the Golden Police Department, the Golden Rescue Fund is a community-based resource that helps people in crisis situations by providing gas, bus passes, prescription vouchers, and food assistance.
