Helping the Homeless with a Jog
Annual Harbor House 5K and 15K
SUPERIOR, Wis. – This weekend some folks will be running for the homeless in the 6th Annual Harbor House 5K and 15K.
This is all taking place on Saturday, May 20, at 9 a.m. at the Richard I. Bong Veterans Historical Center in Superior.
The 5K/15K will follow the beautiful Osaugie Trail, finishing at the Bong Center.
The event, open to all ages and abilities, will begin at 9:00 a.m. for runners and 9:15 a.m. for walkers.
Harbor House Crisis Shelters is celebrating 16 years of service providing emergency shelter, transitional living, and service to homeless women and children.
Past 5K events’ profits have helped raise needed funds to provide these services.
The organization is a faith–based program through Faith United Methodist Church which loves serving those who may find themselves in unforeseen need of housing.
The Superior–based Harbor House Crisis Shelters has helped local families since 2001.
On average 400 people per year are helped with such services as safe housing, clothing, access to food shelves, and community meals.
The organization also provides education, counseling, and other services through case management, empowering families to learn skills to help further prevent homelessness.
Harbor House Crisis Shelters has partnered with Superior Shores Thrivent Financial to create “Comfort Kits” for families and single women entering the shelter.
