After much consideration, we are sorry to say that we are cancelling the Dodge Ridge Ski, Ride, and Play event originally scheduled for March 7. We are very grateful to Sally Helm and her crew at Dodge Ridge for offering the venue and staff support for this event. Because the primary fundraising activity that was planned was a Ski-A-Thon and there is no snow in the forecast, we were forced to make this difficult decision. We pray snow comes soon for our friends at Dodge Ridge.
Habitat for Humanity International has announced that through their home building and home repair efforts which started in 1976, there are now over one million families — representing 5 million people — in improved living conditions since the organization was founded in 1976.
“We are delighted to achieve this incredible milestone and have seen the positive influence a stable home can have on families,” said Jonathan Reckford, CEO of Habitat for Humanity International. “Because of a house, families have better access to health, financial security, education and employment opportunities. We want to continue building impact so that millions more people can have decent, safe places to live.”
