In collaboration with UCSB, New Beginnings Counseling Center presents a special screening of the documentary Skid Row Marathon, followed by a panel with filmmakers Gabriele and Mark Hayes, and cast members including Rafael Cabrera and Judge Craig Mitchell who started the LA Skid Row Running Club - and inspired the film.

The Audience Choice Award at the 2018 Santa Barbara International Film Festival, this film (watch the preview here) 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 human dignity, messages that resonate powerfully with the mission of New Beginnings Counseling Center to help clients find housing and support services.

: Sunday, August 26, 3:00-5:30pm
Where: UCSB Multicultural Center Theater, UCEN
Who: Open to the public (suggested $25 donation at the door) and UCSB students (free with student ID!). No advance tickets required.
