For the fifth year, proceeds from the Pi Day 5k Run/Walk will benefit Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity. Each year, the event is organized by fifth graders at Leonardo da Vinci. Sponsorships, registrations, raffles, and race course details are done by a team of altruistic students on a mission to give back to the community. On Thursday, May 2 at 1 p.m., students presented a record-breaking check to Habitat at Leonardo da Vinci (139 S. Monroe Ave., Green Bay).
Prior years’ contributions:
Total contribution to Habitat: $83,813
The number pi is approximately equal to 3.1415926535897932…and is the circumference of any circle divided by its diameter. Leonardo da Vinci’s very first 5k was held on March 14, 2015, or 3.14.15. Since then, they have stuck to the “Pi Day” theme and host their race as close to that date as possible! The event includes a 5k run/walk, raffles, and a kids’ kupcake run.

Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity will hold a home dedication for the Habane/Egeh family on Thursday, May 16 at 5 p.m. at the home, located at 1743 Chicago Court. Dedications are open to the public and include a short program featuring speakers, a key presentation, and a reflection from the new homeowners. After the program, guests are invited to enjoy refreshments and tour the home.
With a household of 11 and a father with medical needs, it was hard for the Habane/Egeh family to find accessible, suitable, and affordable housing. The family couldn’t be more excited to move into a home that is large enough for their family. This is the first time Greater Green Bay Habitat for Humanity has built a six-bedroom home.
“We look forward to living in our first house,” said the Habane/Egehs. “Thank you all for helping us!”
This is the 113th home Habitat has built and sold to a qualified homebuyer in Brown County. Homeowners have a zero-interest and affordable mortgage that is made possible through generous donations of money, materials, and volunteer labor.
A special thank you to the sponsors on this home including: Wisconsin Public Service (WPS), The George Kress Foundation, J.J. Keller Foundation, Inc., and Kathy Russell.
Join us and witness the positive impact of Habitat for Humanity homeownership in our community.
