Cleveland Habitat’s Virtual Walk, Run, Mosey 2021
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Walk, run and fundraise at your own pace to support affordable homeownership during Cleveland Habitat’s Virtual Walk, Run, Mosey
CLEVELAND, OHIO – For the 20th year, Greater Cleveland Habitat for Humanity will host the Habitat Walk, Run, Mosey for Homes, presented by Enza Financial, to raise funds to build a home for a local Cleveland family.
“Enza is a great partner and supports our mission in many ways,” says Cleveland Habitat President and CEO John Habat. “The sponsorship reflects its core values of helping people.”
The annual event will be held virtually from July 15th-31st, giving participants the opportunity to walk, run or mosey whenever and wherever works for them – all while supporting affordable homeownership in Cleveland.
Registration is now open and includes access to contests (best walker/runner/moseyer with a dog, best t-shirt, etc.), activities and more. Entry level registration is free so anyone can participate. Individuals who register and raise $20 or more will be eligible to receive a Habitat Walk t-shirt. The Walk may be virtual, but it maintains its family-friendly, dog-friendly and donut-friendly spirit.
“This event is very dear to us,” says Habat. “It started with two long-time Habitat volunteers, Pastor John and Mary Evans, and it has grown into a great event to build up the community and support affordable homeownership.”
By participating in the 2021 Virtual Habitat Walk, you will not only help build one home and change the life of one family, you’ll transform a community. The 2021 Habitat Walk house is 1 of 40 houses that are being built across 4 streets in the Buckeye-Woodhill neighborhood.
While the fundraiser will help sponsor the construction of a house, the qualified Habitat homebuyer volunteers for 300 hours and then will purchase the house, paying an affordable monthly mortgage.
