Registration 7:30 am

Blessing Hands &
Morehead Habitat for Humanity
Team Together for Families

Ezra Dike, executive director of Morehead Habitat for Humanity, has agreed with Blessing Hands to sponsor a 5 K Run for Families and Fun Walk. Together we hope to raise money for our charities, which help families help themselves. Money raised will be divided equally.

Habitat makes affordable homes possible for Morehead area families by using volunteers, low interest loans, and sweat equity by home owners.

Blessing Hands gives educational aid to help students in our Sister City, Yangshuo, China, rise above their rural roots and help their families improve their futures.
