Sponsoring Organizations: “A Step in the Right Direction” walk/5k run is to raise awareness and support for the women and children of Amethyst, who were once homeless and now live each day choosing a life of recovery. These women have faced many challenges, when the disease of

and gender-specific treatment to homeless women in Central Ohio.
