Event Details

Housing Authority of the City of Tampa's 3rd Annual

8k run to end homelessness.

Have you ever thought about how you can help homeless families in the community. There is simply not enough funding in the community to help all families. However, you can be part of the community solution by showing your support for this worthy cause. All proceeds go directly to homeless families in our community. Funding will go towards purchasing food, clothing, household goods, security deposits, utility deposits, birth certificates, and social security cards. There are many families that have been homeless for over 10 years and without assistance, may die on the streets. Any amount that is provided will help.

Last year with the generous donations and participation, THA  raised over $1,500 for homeless families in the community. 

  1. Register as an individual or group. Groups can have no more than 5 runners. If signing up as a group, you can come dressed in a theme of your choice.
  2. Pick up registration packets: February 10th, 2017 at  5301 West Cypress Street from 8 am to 6 pm. 
  3. Online registration ends February 8th, 2017 at midnight. You can still participate  on the day of the event if you miss the registration deadline,  but must be there by 8 am to register and must pay by cash only. T-shirt may or may not be available.
