Mission I’m Home: Trick or Trot 5K

Stevenson University’s student volunteer organization, Mission: I’m Home, is hosting its 2nd 5K race, Trick or Trot, on Sunday, October 27 at the Irvine Nature Center. The fundraiser is open to the community and all proceeds from the race support the Mission I’m Home spring break trip to New Orleans to help rebuild homes devastated by Hurricane Katrina.

The Trick or Trot event is a 5K race through the trails of the Irvine Nature Center, 11201 Garrison Forest Road, Owings Mills, MD 21117. Check-in for the race will be 8:30-9:30 a.m., and the race will begin at 10 a.m. Registration is $10 for Stevenson students and $20 for all other participants. All are encouraged to register prior to the event; an additional $5 for registration will be charged the day of the event. To register online, visit mihtrickortrot5k.eventbrite.com.

Participants are encouraged to wear costumes during the race, and there will be a cash prize for the best costume, in addition to cash prizes for the top male and female student and non-student finishers.

“We will be taking 85 people on this year’s volunteer trip to New Orleans,” said Morgan Somerville, Mission: I’m Home advisor and Student Employment Manager at Stevenson. “There are thousands of families who are still displaced from Hurricane Katrina, and we want to do our small part in bringing these families home.”

Mission: I’m Home works with the St. Bernard Project and Habitat for Humanity to help rebuilding efforts in devastated communities. Trick or Trot is just one of the fundraisers that the organization will be hosting this year to raise money and awareness for its cause. It will be hosting an annual Vera Bradley and Longaberger Basket Bingo on February 22 in the Stevenson University Owings Mills campus gym.

Catch a Lift Foundation Fundraiser

Kali’s Court will host the Second Annual Fundraiser for the Catch a Lift Foundation (CAL). Catch a Lift, a Baltimore-based nonprofit organization, provides free gym memberships or in-home equipment to veterans across the country wounded, in Iraq or Afghanistan. The organization was founded in honor of Cpl. Chris Coffland, a Baltimore native who had a passion for working out and enlisted in the Army Reserve just before his 41st birthday.

 

“Chris was one of the greatest people I’ve ever known. He was dedicated to fitness and actively encouraged others to live healthy lives,” said Darin Mislan, Operations Manager for Kali’s Restaurant Group and a longtime friend of Coffland. “It is an honor for me and Kali’s to sponsor this fundraiser in Chris’ memory and to support our brave soldiers.”

 

Attendees can enjoy a food buffet and drinks, as well as entertainment, raffles and random prizes. A silent auction of sports memorabilia, restaurant gift certificates and golf passes will be held during the fundraiser. Honored guests will include CAL veterans, who are members of “Gyms Across America,” and have committed themselves to rebuilding and maintaining their physical and mental health and wellness.

 

Last year, over 125 people attended the event, raising more than $50,000 for the Catch a Lift Foundation.

 

Tickets are $50 and can be purchased at www.catchaliftfund.com/news.cfm?ID=22
