June 6th

HOW's 5K Plus is open and accessible to EVERYONE.  

We invite you to make it your own!

About This Event

Your participation in HOW's 5K Plus will generate funds to help individuals and families secure the fundamental housing, care, and services needed to live a healthy life. 

You will also receive a 5K Plus kit, including a participation certificate, virtual bib, an opportunity to earn a free t-shirt, an invitation to our virtual post-race party, fundraising resources, and more! 

  1. Register and select your chosen activity.
  2. You will have the opportunity to earn a t-shirt by fundraising $100+ for HOW or purchasing one directly during your registration process.
  3. After you register you will be prompted to create your personal fundraising page where you can share your story and set a fundraising goal. You can create a team page instead if you are planning to participate with a group!
  4. After you've registered, someone from HOW will reach out to you directly with next steps and additional resources including information about how to get your race "swag bags" and the virtual afterparty. 

More Details

The day of the event participants will complete their chosen activity. Participants will be encouraged to document their experience and connect with HOW via Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #5Kyourway.

HOW is excited to “host” its second annual 5K Plus on Sunday, June 6th. This do-it-yourself style event invites participants to walk, run, bike, or complete their own customized activity at their own pace, time, and location.

Last year people from across the country (and the globe!) supported HOW in unified and unique ways. The funds generated enabled the agency to make it through 2020 without any reduction in housing or supportive services to the hundreds of individuals and families we serve.  The pandemic has proven that a home is much more than just a roof over one's head; it's a protective factor which enables people to live healthier and happier lives.


This year, HOW is striving to provide the same high-quality housing and personalized support our clients rely on to achieve their personal, health, and employment goals. In order to do so, we need the support of people like you!  Sign up today to participate in HOW's 5K Plus and join our remarkable community of HOW heroes.

HOW's 5K Plus Goal: $100,000!

Check our progress to date! 

HOW will be hosting a virtual party to celebrate your awesome accomplishment! More details to come.

After registering you should receive an email with details about how to set up your fundraising page. If you did not, simply click here. We've also made a handy crowdfunding guide to help you spread the word and meet your goal!

Thank you to our sponsors!
