3/23/2013: Ramona Campus Chapter’s Race Raises $5K!

See a great video of the event created and produced by former Habitat Campus Chapter President Brittany New:

The Ramona Campus Chapter students organized a Lap-a-Thon on March 23rd to raise funds for their State Farm Matching Grant. Over 60 students registered for the event and early Saturday morning on March 23rd they arrived with high spirits and ready to run, jog, and walk for their pledges. Friends and family sat in the stands to cheer the students on as they ran around Ramona’s football field. Volunteers punching the students badge to keep track of laps ran alongside them and gave high five’s to give an extra boost of motivation. The student who were running motivated their peers to not give up and reminded them of why they were there.

During the hour long event it was amazing to see some of the students ran non-stop and others continued long after their pledges were met. When the event ended the students congratulated each other over mini muffins and orange slices while proudly announcing their number of laps and how they met their personal goal.

The Ramona Habitat for Humanity Campus Chapter received a $2,000.00 State Farm Matching Grant with an additional $1,000 bonus once the chapter raises its share to bring the total funding to $5,000. The Ramona Chapter will be donating the funds and volunteering with Habitat for Humanity Riverside’s A Brush with Kindness Program to help revitalize homes in the Ramona community.

The goal was to raise $2,000 in Lap-a-Thon pledges and they far exceeded their expectations. The Ramona Habitat for Humanity Campus Chapter not only met their goal in pledges but showed  their dedication, spirit, and civic responsibility to their community.
