1800TH Habitat Home in Minnesota to be Built in Hibbing

Posted: 0000-00-00 00:00:00

The Montgomery home to be built in Hibbing this year has received the distinguished title of being the 1800th Habitat home to be built in Minnesota. This privilege is a direct result of a partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Minnesota and their Habitat 500 bike ride fundraising event.

The Habitat 500 bike ride with its 130 cyclists and 40 support staff will be traveling through the Iron Range July 14th through the 16th. On July 15th cyclists will have the option of working on the 1800th Habitat home which bike riders affectionately call the “bike home.” Cyclists from all over the country will be raising funds and awareness for their local affiliates. Many of them will also designate a portion of their funds raised to the bike home, adding to the much needed funds that our affiliate is raising for this project.

The North St. Louis County Habitat for Humanity team of riders is looking for those who might wish to join them on this 500 mile, seven day fundraising event that is held from July 11th through the 18th. If you or someone you know would like more information on this event call the Habitat office at 866-749-8910 or check out www.habitat500.org.
