FROM THE RACE ORGANIZERS:
Cape Fear Habitat for Humanity is a Christian housing ministry assisting families in the Cape Fear Region towards the purchase of a Habitat home. How do we do that? By building quality homes that we sell at no profit to families in need. As a private, non-profit organization, our interest-free mortgages allow a wider range of lower income families to qualify for homeownership. We work closely with volunteers, sponsors and families in the Habitat for Humanity program to not only construct homes, but to build better lives. Every donation makes a difference in the lives of a Habitat family. Become a volunteer by offering your time, or a sponsor by donating funds or materials.
