Taking a Stand to End Homeless
On August 20, 2016, hundreds of people joined together with United Way to take a stand to end homelessness in Anchorage and achieved the GUINNESS WORLD RECORD™title for Longest fist bump relay.
The goal behind this lively demonstration of what can be accomplished when we work together was to bump up the momentum, commitment and engagement needed to end homelessness in Anchorage.
Home is the foundation for a meaningful life. A sense of community, success in school, the ability to find and keep a job, and overall financial stability start with permanent housing. And while crises that affect housing will never be fully prevented, we can end a person’s or family’s resulting homelessness quickly when we energize and activate our whole community.
Thank you to everyone who participated!
