The 1st Ever Virtual Habitat 500

Online event takes place July 12-18th, but you can ride anytime!

Bike @ Home celebrates the 28-year history of the Habitat 500 Bike Ride while participants bike in their own communities. The Ride’s goal is to raise money and awareness for Habitat for Humanity, helping to provide decent, affordable housing for families in need. This year, the team is pivoting to an online event!

Want to be a part of pedaling to build a cycle of hope? All riders pay a $50 registration fee that helps cover the cost of the ride, and this year there is no fundraising minimum! Raise $250, $500, or more for your favorite Habitat affiliate! Check website for more information at: habitat500.org (Be sure to choose Fox Valley Habitat as your fundraising affiliate).

Facing Challenging Times

Even though the last couple of months have been challenging, we have not stopped building and plan on getting our families into their homes this year. We are following all safety guidelines with our construction crew on our build sites and we are looking forward to getting the go-ahead to have our volunteers work with us again very soon! In the meantime, please register on our volunteer website www.volunteerfvhabitat.com to be notified when volunteer opportunities become available. Contact Julie with any questions you may have about volunteering. 

To also benefit our partner families, Fox Valley Habitat for Humanity announced the launch of a television campaign targeting the Aurora and Naperville areas due to anticipated increased affordable housing demand. The campaign is aimed at driving increased donations to help the Fox Valley Chapter continue its mission of building more affordable housing.

Women Build 2020

As we have had to navigate our way through the COVID-19 pandemic, we had to rearrange and reschedule some of our events. With that being said, we have rescheduled the Women Build for the weekend of July 31-August 1, and August 6, 7, & 8th.

Spots are limited and going quickly, so register now for your build day! You don't want to miss this inspirational opportunity and meet other amazing women, while also having the experience to help build a Habitat home!
