2019 Emerald City 5K Walk/Run: No place like home

You already know that there is no place like home but sadly, there are over a thousand families in Brevard County without permanent housing. Our Annual Emerald City 5K brings families and our community together to raise awareness and funds to end family homelessness. We believe ALL families should have a safe place to call home.

From music to prizes, this event is jam packed with as much magic as a trip through Oz. Follow the yellow brick road to incredible vendors and fun inflatables- there is excitement at every turn. You can participate in the costume contest and kids can join in the on the festivities too with an “Into the Land of Oz” fun run. This year, all participants will get an Oz themed finisher medal! Join us this March for an event that is out of this world… I mean, over the rainbow!
