Prison Fellowship run/walk event is Sunday in Leavittsburg

LEAVITTSBURG — Prison Fellowship, the nation’s largest outreach to prisoners, former prisoners and their families and a leading advocate for criminal justice reform, will have a ‘Second Chance’ 5K Run/Walk on at 1 p.m. Sunday at the Trumbull Correctional Institution, 5701 Burnett Road.

Hundreds of thousands of Ohioans with criminal records continually face significant legal, social and other barriers that keep them from rejoining society in a positive and productive way.

While having paid their debts by serving their sentences, they still encounter a “second prison” upon release. This second prison not only holds them back, but also limits their potential contributions to the Buckeye State, a news release says.
