Cary, NC – The Carying Place Labor Day VIRTUAL Race For Home

Calling All Runners, Walkers, Families, Friends and Sponsors!

Start your Fall right with a Healthy Jump Start!


Friday, September 4th – Sunday, September 13th

A family friendly 10-day event with 5K, 10K, and Fun Mile races anywhere you want to run or walk! Kids 5 & under may participate for FREE but $10 donation suggested to support the Carying Place mission.

Our Mission: The Carying Place teaches homeless, working families with children life skills for attaining independent living while providing short-term housing and support services to address their individual needs. Our goal is to help these working homeless families achieve independent living through mentoring of volunteers providing weekly guidance in managing personal finances, seeking permanent affordable housing, and maintaining a job – preventing or breaking the cycle of homelessness. To date, we have worked with over 450 families with near 80% success.

In the past, the Labor Day Race for Home has provided the opportunity for over 600 racers and 50 volunteers to support the mission of The Carying Place and we look forward to reaching those same numbers – virtual style. All Race for Home proceeds go directly to help our families succeed!
