Homewood Health Matters 5K adds a Biking Event
The Homewood Health Matters Event is back for a third year with a shiny new set of wheels!
In addition to the annual 5K run-walk, and health expo on Stargell Field, this year’s event will also feature a 10K bicycling loop. The event will take place on Saturday, June 25th. All proceeds from registration will benefit Homewood Children’s Village and their programming.
Monte Williams of Homewood Children’s Village described three reasons behind the event: to encourage the Homewood community to get out and enjoy a healthy lifestyle, to provide community with a positive event, and to invite new people folks to get a chance to see Homewood and see the neighborhood.
Registration is just $10 for the run/walk, $5 for the bike ride, and $15 to participate in both events. Register today.
