Mark Mattern Associate Director York Habitat for Humanity
York Habitat for Humanity has announced that the organization’s 15th annual 5K run/walk fundraiser will be held Saturday, June 23, 2018. This year’s event, once again tabbed “I Survived the Hills for Habitat 5K,” will again take place in Dover, PA using the popular rolling course which starts and ends on Allen Lane in Dover Borough. Registration begins at 7:00 AM and the run/walk starts at 8:30 AM on race day.
York Habitat is also encouraging participants to “Be a Hero” for a York Habitat for Humanity Family. Along those lines, participants are asked to dress as their favorite Super Hero. Habitat expects some runners, but mostly walkers to dress up for the event. Prizes will be awarded for the best “Hero” costumes.
“All year, York Habitat has been honoring those who help make our cause their own by acknowledging them as a “Hero,” said York Habitat’s Associate Director Mark Mattern. “This really is a wonderful opportunity for folks with a common interest, to come out, run and walk to be healthy all while helping create first-time home owner families all over York County.”
Over the years, more than 1,600 runners and walkers have taken part in the York Habitat event which starts and ends in a Habitat for Humanity neighborhood. Funds raised go directly to York Habitat for Humanity to better provide low-income York County residents with the opportunity to purchase a safe, decent, affordable home.
On the running side, prizes will be awarded to the top three overall male and female finishers in eight different age categories. The top overall male and female runners will also receive special recognition. Donated snacks and drinks will be available at the race site.
All levels of sponsorships are still available for this year’s event.
For questions and more information, contact Mark Mattern at 717-756-6559 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock." Matthew 7:24-25
