2015 Habitat Hobble queued up for June 20

On Saturday, June 20, the Grand County Habitat for Humanity will host its 14th annual Habitat Hobble. The Hobble is Habitat’s major local fundraiser and raises money needed to buy the lumber, nails, drywall and all the other items needed to build a Habitat house.

Again this year, the Hobble will offer both 5K and 10K courses, both runs kicking off at 9 a.m. at Cooper Creek Square in Winter Park.

The 5K course will begin at Cooper Creek Square in Winter Park, run north on Lion’s Gate Street, loop around in Grand Park and return back to Cooper Creek Square.

The 10K course will run north along US Highway 40 and then across to the Fraser River Trail and then turn back Lion’s Gate to Cooper Creek Square.

The Hobble is a dog-friendly, family friendly event and includes a finish line party with food, live music, and a silent auction including a wealth of dining, lodging, recreational opportunities and merchandise. Join the fun run and say hello to our 2015 Habitat family – Mike and Aleigha Dickerson and their two children.

Participants are encouraged to register in teams of five. Teams who raise funds exceeding their registration fee will compete for the 2014 Team Spirit Trophy.

Individual registration is $30 and team registration is $120. Register on-line at http://www.habitatgrandcounty.org or on the day of the race at Cooper Creek Square beginning at 8 a.m.

Registration forms are also available at the Winter Park/Fraser Valley Visitor’s Center, area libraries and businesses, online at http://www.habitatgrandcounty.org or by calling 970-887-9138 or by e-mailing info@habitatgrandcounty,org to request a registration form.
