The BankPlus Snowden Grove Amphitheater is the new home of the 9th Annual Homerun For Habitat 5k – KidsDash – Fall Fest.

In 7 years this event has welcomed over 6500 participants who have raised over $136,000 for the Hernando-DeSoto Chapter of Habitat for Humanity.

The local Habitat chapter has built 25 homes for deserving families. This year’s home is located at 7710 Chesterfield Drive South, Southaven, MS 38671.

The success of the HomeRun for Habitat depends on community participation and sponsorship. Habitat for Humanity needs your help. Once again, our goal is to raise $60,000, the approximate cost of building one home for a deserving family. Habitat for Humanity’s vision is “a world where everyone has a decent place to live.” The Hernando-DeSoto chapter selects deserving families from a pool of applicants to be awarded a home. The selected family participates in the construction and commits to pay a 20 year, 0% interest mortgage. In 2013, the first Habitat award recipient paid off her mortgage and now owns her home debt free!

We ask you to join us as a sponsor. We invite you to come out and participate in the fun.

Thank you in advance for helping make a difference in the lives of a DeSoto County family.


      Habitat for Humanity houses are built with volunteer labor and tax deductible donations of money and materials. Habitat houses are then sold to partner families at no profit, financed with affordable, no-interest loans. The homeowners’ monthly mortgage payments are recycled into a revolving Fund for Humanity that is used to build more houses. Homeowners are required to invest 300 hours of “sweat equity” into their house and a combination of other Habitat houses.

      The Habitat for Humanity HomeRun 5K is a great platform for us to proclaim the great services offered by our organizations and sponsors.
