SCI Houtzdale Inmates Donate to Big Brothers Big Sisters
Each year, the SCI-Houtzdale Activities Department, along with the Journey for
Change Organization, hosts its annual Runathon. This year, 242 inmates participated in running and walking for a total of 1,318 miles. Five of the participants accomplished the goal of running a complete marathon of 26.2 miles.
Donations collected from the Runathon were matched by the Journey for Change Organization and the Inmate General Welfare Fund. The combined donations totaled $1,200.
The Journey for Change Organization helps inmates prepare for a successful return to society by educating them about the economics, management and social skills associated with charitable work efforts.
