Habitat Hobble hits Fraser Valley on Saturday
On Saturday, June 18, the Grand County Habitat for Humanity is holding its 10th Annual Habitat Hobble. The Hobble, Habitat’s only fundraising event, will raise money to build our tenth house in Grand County. This year’s event will feature both a 5K and a 10K course for your fun run or walk. Also new this year, the event will both start and finish at Cooper Creek Square in Winter Park. Both fun runs will kick off at 9 a.m.
The 5K course will begin at Cooper Creek Square, run north on Lion’s Gate Street, loop around in Grand Park and return back along Lion’s Gate to Cooper Creek Square. The 10K option will begin at Cooper Creek Square, run north on the bike path west of U.S. Highway 40, cross over at Alco Plaza and return along the gravel Fraser River Trail to Cooper Creek Square.
The Hobble is a dog-friendly, family friendly event and includes a finish line party with food, live bluegrass music by Andy Strauss and Friends, and a silent auction including a wealth of dining, lodging, recreational opportunities and merchandise.
