Hundreds Support Habitat for Humanity at Ventura Half Marathon & 5K

Race organizer Josh Spiker said the event, in its 11th year, was a record turnout.  (Thank you Josh!!)

Joslyn Tillar, a volunteer staffing the booth for Habitat for Humanity, the beneficiary of this year’s race, said the event provided a great way to get word out about what Habitat does and to enlist volunteers. “This gives us the opportunity to share our vision and share the importance of how the community can provide for people who aren’t able to get homes on their own,” Tillar said.  Karen Turek, also a Habitat volunteer, said the race helps the organization get more participants to help build houses and make donations, including land.
