McHenry Hosts Human Race

The best way to make you feel good is to get out and help others. April 10 marks the beginning of National Volunteer Week; an event encouraging and celebrating volunteerism. To commemorate National Volunteer Week, Gerstad Builders welcomes owners of McHenry County new homes to join this Not-For-Profit Resource by participating in the “Human Race” on April 16. This is the first “Human Race” in Illinois and McHenry County is proud to host this inaugural event.

The Race is a 5k run/walk to bring the community together and help fund and support local charities. Walkers and runners raise pledges and then have the option to choose which charity they will support. Organizations such as churches, booster clubs, civic groups, PTA’s and more can be registered to receive funds from the race.

Activities such as these help Gerstad Builders and owners of McHenry, Poplar Grove, Williams Bay and Richmond new homes make new friends as well as benefit their community. The 5K will take place in McHenry’s Corporate Park on Prime Parkway.  For more information or if you have any questions please contact the Volunteer Center at 815-344-4483 or visit the United Way of Greater McHenry County Volunteer Center website.
