Running For Their Lives

Running For Their Lives

Seven years ago, LA Superior Court Judge Craig Mitchell began visiting the shelter Midnight Mission in Los Angeles’s notorious Skid Row after being invited by a parolee. Mitchell started going on regular runs with homeless shelter residents, recovering addicts, and ex-convicts. They were joined by lawyers, members of law enforcement, and local business owners; a running club was soon formed. 

Mitchell began offering the members of the club a once in a lifetime proposition- refrain from using drugs and stay out of prison, and earn the opportunity to travel around the world to participate in marathons.
Ellen’s Silkscreening has partnered with the Skid Row Running Club for the last two years to provide them with activewear shirts, tank tops, hats, and jackets, as well as backpacks for the club members to take with them when they participate in international marathons.

A documentary made about the running club with be screening later this month at the Laemmle Playhouse 7 theater in Pasadena. The film makers, Judge Mitchell, and other members of the club will be in attendance to participate in Q&A sessions after several of the screenings. For more information about the club and the film, we recommend this interviewproduced by the BBC.
