Habitat for Humanity Rake-a-Thon

November 18, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm


The 5th Annual Habitat for Humanity Rake-a-Thon is a fun, family-friendly event for people of all ages that raises funds and awareness for affordable housing in our community. Neighbors​ partner with Habitat by donating an amount of their choice to support our work. Teams of Rakers​ ​then work together to clean up their yards.

Last year the Rake-a-Thon raised $10,000 and more than 400 Rakers participated. We have set our sights higher for this year’s campaign. Our​ ​2017​ ​goals​ ​are​ ​$50,000​ ​and​ ​500​ ​Rakers​ ​to​ ​help build​ ​the​ ​new​ ​Harmony​ ​Ridge​ ​neighborhood.

This year Habitat was awarded a $20,000 matching grant in partnership with State Farm and Habitat for Humanity International. Your partnership will help us reach our fundraising goal and build a beautiful new community!

Please contact us to fill out a Team Leader form, to give us an idea of how many people might be on your team. Filling out a form does not commit you to participation, but will help us plan the event.

Sponsors​ will receive waived registration fees for individual team members and will receive t-shirts for each member. To inquire about sponsorship email gtrent@cvillehabitat.org.

General​ ​public​ will have an $8 early bird registration fee between Sept. 1-Oct. 15 and a standard $10 registration fee between Oct. 16-Oct. 31st. The registration fee includes a t-shirt and raffle ticket.
