Austin Habitat for Humanity is excited to be an official charity partner of the 2017 Austin Marathon, Half-Marathon, and 5k through their Austin Gives Miles program. In an effort to raise awareness that everyone deserves a place to call home, we’re looking for people to trade in work-boots for running shoes and hit the pavement in the name of affordability.
Our goal is to raise $10,000 before the race on February 19th, 2017. As a runner and fundraiser, we're asking you to raise at least $400, which will go directly to building strong, stable, and self-reliant communities right here in Austin.
If you commit to and reach the goal of raising $400 or more, you’ll receive a free entry into the Austin Marathon, Half-Marathon, or 5k!
We’ll be right beside you along the way – literally! The 2017 course runs right by the Habitat ReStore at 500 W Ben White Blvd. Invite friends, family and supporters to watch from our parking lot. We'd love to cheer with them!
