Purple 5k

  • The Purple 5k is back!!! The Purple 5K run was created to empower the community to be actively involved in the fight against homelessness, poverty, and addiction in our city. This fun run/walk starts and ends in downtown Billings under Skypoint and takes participants through the hospital corridor and north elevation neighborhoods of Billings.

  • THE IMPACT YOU HAVE: The Purple 5K directly supports the Spare Change for Real Change micro grant program. Over the last 11 years, the Purple 5k has helped the Spare Change for Real Change program raise over $130,000. Those funds have been put towards local projects and programs that are actively working to alleviate homelessness through education, housing, social services, treatment/rehabilitation, and re-integration.
