BENEFITING: GENESIS HOME
EVENT DATE: Mar 26, 2011
On March 26, 2011, Genesis Home will be participating in Durham's 16th Annual Great Human Race, a 5k run and community walk. The Great Human Race is sponsored by the Volunteer Center of Durham and directly benefits numerous nonprofit organizations within the Triangle area. In last year’s event, more than 100 groups participated and raised nearly $240,000.00!
With your help we will raise $10,000, which will enable us to send every Genesis Home child to summer camp. Let’s make this summer the best yet for our kids! Join Genesis Home in the Great Human Race or to make a donation to this cause please visit the following website:
“Summer Camp for Homeless Kids “ is a new program initiative for Genesis Home. With our volunteers participating in THE GREAT HUMAN RACE we hope to raise enough money to send every Genesis Home child-from preschool to high school- to camp.
Genesis Home is a non-profit transitional, family shelter located in downtown Durham. Since 1989, we have helped over 375 families transition to permanent housing and stability. At any given time, we have approximately 30-35 children living here with their parents.
How can you help?
JOIN OUR TEAM, led by volunteer and Olympic athlete Mechelle Lewis and walk or run the race.
