Back for our third sweetest race ever!! A deliciously sweet addition to the Annual Habitat Strawberry Festival in Ocala.
The Strawberry Jam 5K along with the Habitat Strawberry Festival are fundraisers to raise enough funds to build the 2020 Strawberry House for a low-income family.
Habitat for Humanity of Marion County is a non-profit 501(c) 3 organization.
Welcome to the 3rd annual Strawberry Jam 5K scheduled on Saturday, March 2, 2019 at 8:00 am being held prior to the Habitat Strawberry Festival at 601 SE 25th Ave. Ocala.
Why we host a Strawberry Jam 5K- Habitat for Humanity of Marion County's goal is to eliminate poverty from Marion County and provide a safe and secure place for a family to raise their children. 100% of proceeds will benefit the Home-ownership Program that offers low-income families, who meet the criteria, the opportunity to have a decent home with affordable monthly mortgage payments and zero percent interests. The proceeds will be used to build the 2019 Strawberry House.
