Advancing Real Change, Inc. promotes justice
by ensuring that the life histories of people ​charged with crimes
are at the forefront of their cases.
Support ARC, Inc.'s Work

Save the date for our Steps Towards Justice Hike-a-thon May 22 - 23! Join us and hike (run, bike, skate, or however you like to move) to support ARC, Inc.'s juvenile justice efforts. When registration becomes available, participants will complete the registration form and encourage family and friends to pledge donation amounts toward their activity. Supporters can pledge an amount per half-mile (1,000 steps) or a fixed amount of their choice. On the hike-a-thon weekend, participants will track their activity (in miles or steps) and we will tally up these numbers to measure our collective movement toward justice!

Steps Towards Justice is a remote event. Participate alone or as part of a small group (following safety guidelines) at your chosen location.

To receive early notification for registration, complete the hike-a-thon interest form. Please contact Mary at with any hike-a-thon questions.

Become a Hike-a-thon Volunteer

Would you or someone you know like to volunteer remotely for the Steps Towards Justice Hike-a-thon? We are seeking Regional Ambassador volunteers who will lead efforts in their community and encourage others to participate or pledge to support participants. Volunteers may also lead a group of local hikers (if participating in person - socially distanced, of course). A personalized fundraising page and promotional materials will be provided.
