Our Mission

Giving the Gift of Education

Crossover Youth Center is a non-profit organization focused on at-risk youth in Southwest Florida. Our mission is to provide a loving environment, which will enable youth to leave behind poor habits and inherit greater levels of Godly character while being surrounded by a family of caring supporters. The Downtown Christmas Run is a Christmas-themed 5K run and 1-mile walk fundraising event hosted in downtown Fort Myers. All of the proceeds of the event will go to benefit Crossover Youth Center’s After school Program. Crossover’s After school Program provides tutoring, mentor ship, and after school activities for inner-city urban youth in Southwest Florida.




The Event

Downtown Christmas Run

The Downtown Christmas Run is an exciting way to get into the Christmas spirit. We will be running through downtown Fort Myers over the bridge and back to the finish line. Since this is a evening run, we will be lighting the course with Christmas lights as our way of spreading Christmas cheer. We encourage every participant to wear Christmas colors and or costume that fits the Christmas theme. The first 250 racer that register prior to race day will receive a free race shirt and a Christmas bracelet that will help them jingle along the course. Come celebrate Christmas this special night and light the path for those running behind you. All proceeds from the event go toward Crossover Youth Center Afterschool Program.
