Lawn Areas / Foss Mary Low

Get ready: This coming Saturday, October 9 is the 4th annual Hurry for Habitat 5K Run/Walk!

Run or walk the 5 kilometer (~ 3 mile) route to and back from the site of the next Habitat for Humanity house. At the same time, you’ll be raising funds needed to complete the house for a deserving Waterville-area family. The entry fee is only $5 per participant, and there will be lots of prizes from supporting local businesses as well as water bottles awarded to participants (not only for the top finishers!). This year, our generous sponsors include Bread Box Cafe, Freedom Café, Papa John’s, Jorgensen’s, Pad Thai, Pad Thai Too, Hannaford, Applebee’s, Bull Moose Music, Friendly’s, and many more!

Registration begins at 10:00 am on Mayflower Hill Drive, on the Colby College Campus, across from the Foss parking lot. Watch for the signs as you drive up Mayflower Hill from Pleasant St.—you can’t miss it! Start time is 11:00. Pledge sheets can be picked up at the Waterville Town Hall and turned in on the day of the race. Special prize for most pledges collected.

Come have a blast while joining the fight for safe, decent housing in the Waterville Area!
