The Homestretch believes in the power of community and that giving back moves us all forward. We require each of our athletes to donate two hours a week to a local charity. This can include riding bikes with kids at El Grupo, helping our friends at Ben’s Bells with their kindness project, getting involved with animal shelters, speaking at a school, cleaning up our local roadways, etc. We’ll help you find something. Are you willing to donate your time to our Tucson community? *
Travel Coordination
Once selected for residency, our athletes may arrive at the Homestretch house between 9am-9pm on their first day of residence.

Cabs to/from the airport take about ~35min to the Homestretch, and are the responsibility of the athlete to coordinate. I understand the travel logistics for arrival:
When living in a communal residence, character is an important consideration. Please provide 2-3 personal references we may contact regarding your application. Email and/or phone. Thank you.
