Habitat for Humanity of Durham – Learn About “The House That Running Built”

Each of us can make a difference in the lives of our neighbors. In 2017, three Durham runners, Ginny Ghezzo, Nan Lujan, and Tracy Cox launched “The House That Running Built” with Durham Habitat. The three women met through RunBuds, a women’s running program hosted by Bull City Running Company. They’ve been running together for years and have made a tradition of running on their birthdays which are 10 years apart. In 2020, they hit milestone birthdays: 40, 50, and 60. To celebrate their milestones, they are challenging the running community to raise enough money to fund three Habitat homes by the end of 2020. Runners (and the people who love them!) have proven their generosity because they have already raised $86,000–they will start building the first home this fall!
 
Participants of the Bull City Race Fest can log on to http://thtrb.org and set up a fundraising page to help with this campaign.  Encourage friends and family to support the efforts of The House That Running Built and if you are able to raise $500, you and a guest will be invited to participate in the Bull City Race Fest VIP experience.  Highlights include: Line-free portalets and beer, Free hot breakfast, Exclusive Habitat Swag, Race Day Packet Pickup, and more!
