Do you need a little bit of extra push to get GOING this winter? Sign up for Tour de Habitat on March 9 and start moving! It’s a fun day to spend with your team of friends, family, co-workers, or church groups and will benefit the community.
What We are Racing For
Besides getting some exercise, spend a fun Saturday afternoon leisurely pedaling and cheering on your teammates as you work together to make a lasting difference in the lives of local families. By raising funds from family, friends, businesses and church groups, you will raise not only much needed dollars to support Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity, but also awareness in our community about the families that are in need of a place to call home.
Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity’s goal to raise $40,000 this year through Tour de Habitat to support the construction of homes with low-income families in Cass and Clay counties in 2013. We need you to help make a difference!
