5K run for Humanity at USI

Walk, run or even do a combination of both at this Saturday’s Habitat for Humanity Home Run 5K.

April 2 marks the third year for the charity event, which is hosted on the USI campus.


The race begins 9 a.m. at the Physical Activities Center.

Participants will make their way around campus, eventually ending up back at the PAC to finish the race.

“Profits from the race will go towards building Habitat homes in Evansville,” said Chelsey Mullins, president of the USI chapter of the organization.

The USI chapter of Habitat for Humanity helped organize this event and is encouraging everyone to come out and participate.

“Our USI chapter has donated over $10,000 to the Evansville Habitat for Humanity affiliate, and we hope to continue fundraising, educating on the housing needs of our community and building homes,” said Chris Hoehn, director of Religious Life.

If you feel like giving to charity or seeing if you can go the distance, the Home Run 5K is a good way to give back to the community.

Those wishing to participate should register online by April 1 by going to www.active.com and searching USI Habitat for Humanity Home Run 5K. Those interested can also register on race day.

Online registration is $20 per person.

Registration will begin at 8 a.m. on race day at a cost of $25 per person.
