The Heather’s Home 5K is designed to raise support for the children of Heather’s Home Ministries, including Heather’s Home Orphanage, founded in November of 2009 in Port-au-Prince, Haiti by John and Heather Earley of Erin, NY. Their goal is to rescue and raise orphaned and abandoned kids, around the world, providing for them: a home, an education, a family, love, hope, and a future. For more information about Heather’s Home, visit www.heathers-home.org.
Kids Fun Run is for ages 12 & under.
We are offering a Virtual Race! This means our participants may be from all over the world! If we have approval from the City of Elmira, we will also hold the race in-person on August 1. Join our team and run the Heather’s Home 5K Virtual Race beginning August 1 through August 5. We are hoping that we will still be able to have our on-site race at Eldridge Park on August 1, but since we are uncertain if that will work, we have offered this additional way of supporting children worldwide.
What Is A Virtual Race? A Virtual Race is like a traditional race but it takes place in a location and time of your choice. You can walk, jog, or run wherever you may be, and at any time during the race timeframe for your chosen distance. All participants in the Heather’s Home Virtual Race will receive a race packet via mail after the race. (Local runners may also choose to pick up their packet or have it delivered within a 20-mile radius.) Runners will receive a race t-shirt (available for an additional fee), custom runner bib (emailed to the address used when registering) and custom Finisher Medal. Registration includes all domestic shipping fees. Additional fees for international shipping.
