The Haven is thrilled to announce that our annual Run for Home race has inherited the former MJ8K course! Join us on Saturday, March 7, 2015 at 8 AM for a family friendly 8K run or 4K walk. The race starts and finishes on the Charlottesville Downtown Mall and winds through historic and scenic downtown neighborhoods (a map of the course is forthcoming!). All participants will receive an official HAVEN fleece running hat! PLUS a free continental breakfast and awards ceremony will be held in The Haven’s historic sanctuary immediately following the race.
WE NEED VOLUNTEERS TO CHEER ON OUR RUNNERS! EMAIL VOLUNTEER@THEHAVEN.ORG FOR MORE INFORMATION.
Early Bird registration– ages 15 and up: $30, ages 6-14: $20
All proceeds benefit The Haven.
Located in downtown Charlottesville, The Haven, is a safe and welcoming day shelter for the homeless and very poor of central Virginia. Serving over 85 people daily, The Haven provides respite for the weary and transformation for the ready. We are so grateful to our friends at Martha Jefferson for kindly sharing their course with us as they move their footrace (now a 5K on 5/2/2015) to their Pantops campus.
