Run for Life benefits Joshua's House
Shamrock Park in Clare will be the setting for the 2015 Run for Life event hosted by Joshua’s House on Saturday.
The shelter, which houses women who are homeless and expecting a child, also cares for other community residents who find themselves without a place to call home.
Funds raised during this year’s event will assist in renovating the new education center that is located in the lower portion of the facility.
The education center will allow the shelter to enhance the classes currently offered to the residents and open the classes to residents within the community who have an interest in developing their skills and increasing their understanding of finances, resume writing, interviewing, cooking, baking, child development, canning, dehydrating food and more.
Runners may pre-register for the race by visiting joshuashouseint.org. Volunteers for race day are still needed to assist with small tasks; for further information, call (989) 424-5434. Race day registration for the 5K, 10K event will begin at 8 a.m. under the smaller pavilion at Shamrock Park positioned behind the Clare VFW Hall located at 145 Wilcox Parkway in Clare. Concessions will also open at 8 a.m. and the race will begin at 9 a.m.
