Crow River Habitat for Humanity, Inc. has been chosen as the “bike.home” site for 2012. Officials say it will be the 20th anniversary for Habitat 500, the affiliate’s 21st home, and the state of Minnesota’s 2,001st Habitat home.
Each year the Habitat 500 participants and volunteers help build and raise funds for a Habitat home that is built along the Habitat 500 route, which they call the “bike.home”.
Since beginning the program, riders have raised an average of $25,000 to help build the home. The goal is to one day raise enough money to fully sponsor the home.
Habitat 500 Bike Ride will take place July 15th through July 21st, 2012.
If you, your church, family or friends are interested in somehow helping with the event, you can contact the Crow River Habitat for Humanity at (320)587-8868 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
