As many of you know COVID-19 put a stop to us building this year. We are however, gearing up for two big projects next year and would be grateful for your support. We are planning on doing a Veterans Build in 2021 and start another home for a deserving family. With lumber costs increasing significantly, it means your support is even more important to us. Not only in your giving but in your ability to volunteer. We need your support and our goal is big so consider joining in our mission.
Join us for the 2020 Virtual Habitat 500 Join us for the 2020 Virtual Habitat 500: Bike @ Home!
This event celebrates the 28-year history of the Habitat 500 Bike Ride while participants bike in their own communities. In 2020, we invite participants to cycle any time between registering and September, for as many miles as they would like! Each rider pays a registration fee and also raises funds from family, friends, businesses, and faith groups and designates the Habitat for Humanity affiliates they wish to support (both locally and around the world).
Fundraising has already begun, and donations are greatly needed by Habitat in your communities! Habitat affiliates need this money more than ever, as they have also had to cancel or postpone events, temporarily close ReStores, and pause volunteer days. They’re currently busy making plans for the future and working with their homeowners to keep them safely housed.
From now through September, hop on your bicycle as much as you’d like: ride a stationary bike, an exercise bike, or in your community. Following all local government and health guidelines, we invite you to ride 500 miles, 500 kilometers, or 500 feet: any distance is fine!
Habitat Minnesota and the Habitat 500 Committee are planning great events and activities to engage riders during the week of the virtual Ride: July 12-18, 2020. Stay tuned for more details!
