The Strides for Shelter 5K is one of the only local races dedicated to housing issues. Since the inception of Strides for Shelter, the Foundation has given out more than $65,000 from the race proceeds to several worthy local beneficiaries.
In addition to the 5K Run/Walk, participants can enjoy a Fun Run around the lake and a full morning of activities for the entire family.
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.
