A virtual run/walk/bike 1 mile or 5K to support the Gang Alternatives Program (GAP)
The Gang Alternatives Program’s (GAP) is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization founded in 1986. Our vision is to prevent young people from joining gangs, and our mission is to eliminate a base of gang membership by having a generation of young people say “no” to gangs, and “yes” to positive lifestyle choices. GAP's Goals & Objectives implements both the Public Health Model and the Social-Ecological Model, based on the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) proven framework for prevention. GAP applies these models to our youth development, violence prevention and community awareness programs. Reducing crime by using its proven prevention methods to transform the individual, the family, the community and its negative cultural influences.
