As part of the Generosity Series, The Monkey & The Elephant 5K will take place on October 14, 2018 in Fairmount Park, Philadelphia. You don't want to miss this amazing event featuring a live DJ, pre-race warm-up & stretch, a professional announcer, one-of-a-kind M&E event gear and just an amazing time with friends, family, neighbors, co-workers and other charitable individuals like yourself.
The Monkey & The Elephant was founded in 2011, launching full operations in our brick-and-mortar coffee shop in 2015. The Monkey & The Elephant's transitional employment program was created to provide personal and professional skills, employment and a supportive community for young adults who have been involved in the foster care system.
Funds raised through The Monkey & The Elephant 5K will directly support the participants in our program. Funds will assist our organizational growth and sustainability. Our coffee shop in Brewerytown brings in a little under 50% of our total organizational budget. We need the support of incredible individuals like you to provide this incredible employment and learning opportunity for those in our program.
