On November 12 Housing Families held its Annual Housing Families 5K at Rivers Edge Park in Medford.
The Annual Housing Families 5K is an opportunity to bring awareness to our vision of achieving housing equity and well-being for all, to raise awareness for National Homelessness Awareness Week, and to bring together the local community for a fun-filled day.
This year the community raised just over $44,000 for Housing Families programs.
Everyone enjoyed the after-party held at The Porch Restaurant thanks to the generous sponsorship by River’s Edge. The first-place winner, Ryan Fernandez, won a week-long stay at the Fairways at Loon Mountain Resort (sponsored by Baystate Benefit Services)
