Strides for Shelter 5K Run/Walk
Sponsored by the Canopy Housing Foundation
(Formerly known as the Housing Opportunity Foundation)
Join us on our new date, October 4, 2020 and receive this new finisher medal in celebration of our 5th year
The Canopy Housing Foundation, the charitable arm of the Canopy Realtor® Association, will be hosting our fifth-annual Strides for Shelter 5K Run/Walk on October 4, 2020. As we enter our fifth year of hosting this race, we are thrilled that we have been able to donate over $65,000 to local community nonprofits that are making “Strides for Shelter” in our Charlotte community.
The event will be held at McAlpine Park in Charlotte. In addition to the 5K Run/Walk, the morning will include a one-mile Fun Run around the pond and a Kids Zone area with fun activities for children. Come run (or walk) and support a GREAT cause while enjoying a fall day with a live DJ in beautiful McAlpine Park.
Proceeds from the 2020 Strides for Shelter 5K Run/Walk will benefit Hope House Foundation. The Hope House Foundation’s mission is to provide transitional housing and supportive services to women and children who are experiencing homelessness in Mecklenburg County in order for them to procure long-term housing and self-sufficiency
Funds from the race will be used to complete the renovation of the garage area to create a play/learning space that cultivates resilience in children experiencing family homelessness. This new space will expand the services offered by the Hope House Foundation to include an enhanced learning environment with new books, toys, and educational tools and equipment.
As the sponsoring organization, the Canopy Housing Foundation is the charitable arm of the Canopy Realtor® Association (formerly known as the Charlotte Regional Realtor® Association). The Foundation works to create a community where all housing needs are met. The Foundation and its 12,000+ Realtor® members create housing opportunities through advocacy, education, funding and leadership.
