Virtual OHFA & OCCH Race for a Place (to Call Home) 5K

  • Virtual Race for a Place 5K

Your family's health and safety are important to us, which is why we've decided to take the race virtual this year. This year's virtual 5K run/walk means you can run or walk from your favorite neighborhood trail, one of Ohio's incredible state parks, or on the treadmill at home or the gym! Post pictures of your walk/run on social media with #Race4Place! We can't wait to see where you choose to participate! The opening ceremony (link will be sent via email) will be held virtually on April 17, 2021 at 9:00am, but you can choose run/walk whenever you're available.

Join the Ohio Housing Finance Agency and Ohio Capital Corporation for Housing for the 3rd annual OHFA & OCCH Race for a Place (to Call Home) 5K. This fun run/walk raises money for organizations on the frontline of housing insecurity issues, homelessness, emergency services and prevention: Cleveland/Cuyahoga County Continuum of Care agencies, Neighborhood Properties-Toledo, and the Athens/Hocking/Vinton County Mental Health Board. These organizations serve single adults, youth, families, survivors of domestic violence, and those with mental health needs. Proceeds from the race will be distributed to each organization to serve specific shelters and programs in their communities.

This race is perfect for serious runners, casual walkers and the entire family! Thank you for supporting these great organizations doing amazing work in Ohio!
