Ashby House would like to organize a Color Run/Walk fundraiser to help raise money towards building a new, ADA accessible shelter able to house more families and individual women – including those with limited mobility. The agency houses an average 600-750 men, women, and children annually. This often results in there being more people in need than there are rooms available. As a result, Ashby House has had to resort to setting up beds in other communal living areas of its shelter and childcare facility to accommodate overflow. The new shelter, which will be built next to our current emergency shelter, will be able to both accommodate 60 people and have rooms accessible for persons with physical disabilities.
Event Description: The Color Run/Walk will be held on Saturday, May 30th. It will include a 5K run and a 5K Family Run and 1K walk at the Soccer Complex on East Magnolia.
Event Times: 6:30-10:30 a.m. (8-10 a.m. race)
Participation Costs: Race participants will be charged $20 for early registration. People will also be given the option of registering the day of the race for $25.
