Running Down The Walls 2022 Reportback
We’re pleased to share the success and reportback from the fifth annual Philadelphia Running Down The Walls in support of political prisoners and prisoners of war.

We kicked off the day with an inspiring Yoga warm-up led by Sheena Sood. Did you say Yoga warm-up? In the rain? That's right!

She supports community members who live with HIV and chronic illnesses to access medical and critical care, often at her own expense. She provides regular outcalls to elders and clients who cannot leave their homes as a professional massage therapist. [Read More]
