The Race HOME

Fundraisers
Project HOME's The Race HOME is on October 8, 2022

The 2nd annual Race HOME will take place on Saturday, October 8, 2022. You can participate one of three ways to help raise awareness of Project HOME’s mission to end and prevent chronic street homelessness:

  • 5k Race at Lloyd Hall, along Kelly Drive, in Philadelphia, PA;
  • 1 mile Family Walk at Lloyd Hall; or,
  • Participate in any outdoor wellness activity, from anywhere!

We know that street homelessness greatly impacts a person’s physical and mental health, and this event will highlight the important role physical and mental wellness plays in an individual’s journey towards permanent, supportive housing. Your race participation will help someone find their way HOME by supporting programs like our Hub of Hope, which offers a safe place where people can enjoy a warm cup of coffee, shower, wash laundry, see a doctor, or meet with a case manager.

The Race HOME is part of this year’s Bring Philly HOME celebration.
