Welcome to the 2019 Habitat for Humanity Neon 5K Run/Walk. This 5K will take place on Saturday, April 20th and is organized by students at the University of Pennsylvania and Temple University to raise funds for the Philadelphia Chapter of Habitat for Humanity. The mission of Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia is to transform lives by building quality homes in partnership with families in need and, locally, uniting all Philadelphians around the cause of affordable housing.  UPenn’s Habitat for Humanity Chapter helps to fight homelessness in our community and beyond, through monthly volunteer builds, restore projects, and community outreach events throughout the year.  This year's community sponsors are World Cafe Live, The Fresh Grocer, and HipCityVeg.  We've chosen the theme of neon colors to symbolize our efforts illuminate the cause of affordable housing.  Please wear your brightest neon colors on race day to show support!
