In collaboration with UCSB New Beginnings presents:
A very special screening of Skid Row Marathon documentary followed by a panel with the filmmakers Gabriele and Mark Hayes and and cast including Rafael Cabrera and Judge Craig Mitchell who started the LA Skid Row Running Club – and inspired the film. This film follows four runners as they rise from the mean streets of LA to run marathons around the world, fighting the pull of homelessness and addiction at every turn. Their story is one of hope, friendship and dignity. Audience Choice Award at 2018 Santa Barbara International Film Festival. The messages of hope and human dignity in Skid Row Marathon resonate powerfully with the mission of New Beginnings Counseling Center to help clients find housing and support services.
