The warmer weather is finally here, bikini season is well on its way, and it’s a fantastic time to get some friends, family, and co-workers together for some exercise and outdoor adventure. Why not take a hike to help support people in your community? Greater Manchester Habitat for Humanity is partnering up with other Habitat for Humanity chapters for their annual Hike for Humanity fundraiser.
The event is offered on two Saturdays in June. On June 1st hike beautiful Mt. Monadnock in Jaffrey NH ($4 fee to enter the State Park), or you can hike the Blue Hills Reservation in Milton, MA on June 8th (you can bring your dog here). Folks can sign up individually or as teams of up to 10 people. Get friends, family members, even your boss to sponsor you, and individuals who raise more than $125 get a T-shirt (and who doesn’t love a T-shirt?). All proceeds are used to build affordable homes for deserving low-income families.
Check in/registration for the hike is anywhere from 9 am to 2 pm and all hiking must be done by 5 pm. A fantastic way to enjoy a Saturday and help your local communities! For more information, or to register for the event please visit http://www.takeahikeforhumanity.org. You can select your local Habitat chapter when registering. It is a wonderful event, a great hike and can be done at your own pace. I’ll be attending the hike at Mt. Monadnock and I hope to see you there!
About Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity is a 501c3 non-profit, that rehabs or builds properties for low-income families. They look for families to put in sweat equity in the building of the homes, and sells them at affordable prices with zero percent interest loans. The proceeds from the sale of those homes are used to fund the next building project. If you would like more information about the Greater Manchester Habitat for Humanity, or are interested in working on the rehabilitation of their current project a 3 family home in Manchester (think putting on a hard hat and swinging a hammer and a lot of fun) go to their website at http://www.habitatmanchester.org/
