Residents of McHenry Homes Get Active for a Cause at Human Race

McHenry County’s popular Human Race is back this year and is expected to be bigger and better than ever. Scheduled for Sunday, April 21 at 9:00 a.m., this 5K run/walk is a great opportunity for experienced runners or newcomers to get some exercise while supporting local charities.

Walkers and runners from nearby McHenry homes are encouraged to start registering for the race today. Participants can sign up online at www.active.com for $30 through April 17. After that date, individuals may register on the day of the race for $40. Proceeds from race registrations and fundraising will benefit non-profit organizations throughout McHenry County. Participants can designate which organization will receive the proceeds of their race when they register. A wide variety of organizations benefit from the Human Race, including school booster clubs, food pantries, Habitat for Humanity, Girl Scouts and much more.

The Human Race was created in 2011 to support local volunteerism and offer funding to charities serving McHenry County. This year, take the opportunity to support your community by participating in the Human Race. You can join a team with your co-workers, friends, favorite charity or participate on your own. For more information, visit www.mchumanrace.org.

McHenry County hosts several events throughout the year that support local charities while bringing the community together. You can join this active community today when you purchase a new home from Gerstad Builders at one of our two McHenry County communities: Liberty Trails in McHenry and The Trails of Pheasant Ridge. Additionally, we build new homes in Poplar Grove at The Trails of Dawson Creek and Bailey Estates in Williams Bay, Wis.
