Donate Now To Support Judge Craig Mitchell's Inspiring Cause!

This is Judge Craig Mitchell, an LA High Court Judge. He's on a journey to rehabilitate former and current inhabitants of the infamous Skid Row in LA, by training them up to become long distance runners. His story is so inspiring that it became the focus of the critically acclaimed documentary, Skid Row Marathon. 

On the 22nd April 2018 Judge Craig will be in the UK running the Virgin Money London Marathon for three different charities, who each contribute in their own way to giving homeless individuals a new start in life:  The Skid Row Running Club, The Big Issue and The Running Charity. You can donate here to support Judge Craig as he raises money for these three amazing causes - any donation is greatly appreciated. 

All money raised will be split to help these three amazing charities.  His own Skid Row Running Club in LA, The Running Charity who also use the transformative powers of running to help homeless people in the UK and The Big Issue Foundation who help homeless people in the UK by creating employment opportunities for them. 

About Skid Row Marathon Documentary

Released in the UK/Ireland on 9th May, the film follows five of the runners' journeys, their ups and downs, their successes and failures as they follow Judge Craig's strict training plan. 

After giving the runners back their dignity and instilling a sense of purpose in them, Judge Craig promises to take them on the trip of a lifetime to an international marathon if they maintain their sobriety and commit to the disciplined training programme.  

Come and see the uplifting, award-winning documentary that demonstrates the redemptive powers of running, at cinemas nationwide on 9th May! Tickets available here
