BENEFITING: Habitat for Humanity of Greater Portland
ORGANIZER: Habitat for Humanity of Greater Portland
EVENT DATE: Apr 14, 2017
On Friday April 14th, the renamed Team Edgar-Chance will again take to the road for the 22nd year in support of Habitat for Humanity. The members of Team Edgar have been part of the walk since 1995, joined by our namesake, Edgar the black lab, in 2001.
This year Chance the Puppy joins the team. He’s not even 5 months old yet and he’s a little guy (don’t tell him – he thinks he’s a big dog) so I don’t think he’s doing more than a mile or two this year. But we’ll have him build up to 20 miles eventually. The Habitat walk was always one of Edgar’s favorite days of the year. No doubt Chance will have a blast too as we celebrate Edgar’s memory and raise funds to support the creation of affordable housing in the greater Portland area.
Many of us support numerous worthy charitable causes and receive requests from friends, family and neighbors to support many other fundraisers. We hope you will consider a donation to Habitat to help bring more decent, affordable housing to our community. Funds raised will join with local volunteers, in-kind donations from individuals and businesses, and sweat equity from future homeowners to build homes in the greater Portland area. Please consider supporting this effort with your generosity.
