The Charity Partner of the Annual Run The D.O.G. St. 5K race is Habitat for Humanity Peninsula & Greater Williamsburg!!

Habitat for Humanity's mission is to bring people together to build homes, communities and hope for hardworking families in the cities of Hampton, Newport News, Poquoson and Williamsburg, plus the counties of Charles City, James City, New Kent and York, Virginia. Habitat families have low to moderate incomes with excellent credit and steady employment, live or work locally and have a need for decent, affordable housing. Habitat homes are energy efficient and purchased with a zero-interest mortgage. Mortgage payments are then recycled to build future Habitat homes!

Race proceeds will be used to build a Habitat home for an excited local family!

Homeownership is one of the most stabilizing forces in a community. Habitat's families do the work that supports our quality of life and our society. These families are the backbone of our community and economy.

Help Habitat to build strength, stability and independence for this future Williamsburg family with a gift today!
