Join the Ohio Housing Finance Agency and Ohio Capital Corporation for Housing for the 3rd annual OHFA & OCCH Race for a Place (to Call Home) 5K. This fun run/walk raises money for three organizations on the front line of homeless prevention: Cleveland/Cuyahoga County Continuum of Care, Neighborhood Properties – Toledo and the Athens/Hocking/Vinton County Mental Health Board. These organizations serve men, families, survivors of domestic violence, and those with mental health needs. Proceeds from the race will be distributed to each organization to serve specific shelters and programs in their communities.
This family-friendly event is perfect for serious runners, casual walkers and the entire family! We are adding some serious fun to this year’s race and will be featuring costumed characters, balloon artists, face painters and more. Enjoy some healthy fun in the Columbus Arena District and support a great organization doing amazing work in Ohio.
