Race for a Place (to Call Home) 5K

Volunteer Sign Up

Thank you for volunteering for the 3rd annual Race for a Place (to Call Home) 5K! We appreciate your support of organizations providing needed homelessness services in our state.

We regret to inform you that in light of Governor DeWine's executive order which limits the number of people gathered in indoor and outdoor locations, we are postponing this year's Race for a Place 5K.

We are working to secure a new date and will keep you informed about our next steps, and how you can still participate in the rescheduled Race for a Place 5K.

Your family's health and safety are important. For information on how Ohio is working to fight the spread of the disease, please visit https://coronavirus.ohio.gov/wps/portal/gov/covid-19/.
