Strides for Shelter 5K Run/Walk
Sponsored by the Canopy Housing Foundation
(Formerly known as the Housing Opportunity Foundation)
Making “Strides for Shelter” by funding housing needs in our Charlotte community
The Canopy Housing Foundation will be kicking off the summer by hosting our 5th annual Strides for Shelter 5K on October 4, 2020. Since the inception of Strides for Shelter, the Foundation has given out $65,000 from the race proceeds to several worthy local beneficiaries.
The event will be held at McAlpine Park in Charlotte. In addition to the 5K Run/Walk, participants can enjoy a Fun Run around the pond and a Kids Zone area. Come enjoy the race (for a good cause), as well as food and entertainment.
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 specifically used to complete the renovation of the garage area to create a play/learning space that cultivates resilience in children experiencing family homelessness. This newly created space will expand the services being 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, non-proﬁt 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.
