The 6th Annual Habitat for Humanity HomeRun 5K invites all families and friends out to this fun day in Snowden Grove Park, Southaven, MS.

***New This Year***

10K – every participant for the 10K will receive a finisher’s medal
 Snowden Grove Amphitheater will be the home for this year’s event.

The 6th Annual HomeRun for Habitat looks to entertain over 2000 as it moves to the Snowden Grove Amphitheater and features a 5K - 10K - Kids Dash - Midway. Last year with the support of over 1700 people and the matching contribution of a local business we honored Dave Bowden in reaching his dream of raising $60,000 for Habitat for Humanity.

The success of HomeRun for Habitat depends on community participation and sponsorship.  Habitat for Humanity needs your help.

Once again, our goal is to raise $60,000, the approximate cost of building one home for a deserving family. Habitat for Humanity’s vision is “a world where everyone has a decent place to live.” The Hernando-DeSoto chapter has built over 20 homes for DeSoto County families. 

We ask you to join us as a sponsor. We invite you to come out and participate in the fun. The event is Sunday, October 19th, at 1:00pm and will include: a Midway with games for kids, food from some of DeSoto County’s best eateries, entertainment, a DeSoto County Schools competition, a 5K, Kids Dash, and NEW THIS YEAR... a 10K! Everyone who participates in the Kids Dash and 10K will receive a finisher’s medal. The 5K and 10K are professionally timed and managed by Start2Finish Event Management. 

Commit to join us as a sponsor and participant today. Thank you in advance for helping make a difference in the lives of a DeSoto County family.

Habitat for Humanity houses are built with volunteer labor and tax deductible donations of money and materials. Habitat houses are then sold to partner families at non-profit, financed with affordable, no-interest loans. The homeowners’ monthly mortgage payments are recycled into a revolving Fund for Humanity that is used to build more houses. Homeowners are required to invest 300 hours of “sweat equity” into their house and a combination of other Habitat houses.  For more information on Habitat for Humanity please visit http://www.desotohabitat.org/ 
 
The Habitat for Humanity HomeRun 5K is a great platform for us to proclaim the great services offered by our organizations and sponsors. With Snowden Grove Park, the ‘crown jewel’ of North MS, as the stage for our event, we will be hosting over 700 runners from all over the mid-south. The Habitat for Humanity HomeRun 5K will soon become the premiere running event and fund raiser in DeSoto County.
