The 17th annual Somerville Homeless Coalition 5K Road Race took place Saturday, October 6. This year’s race featured electronic timing with start and finish mats.  Following the race, runners were treated to brunch at Davis Square 7 Hills Park, where an awards ceremony also took place.

All proceeds from the race benefit the Somerville Homeless Coalition, an innovative non-profit organization that provides a wide range of social services to the Somerville area’s homeless, near-homeless and working poor. The Coalition is committed to providing those in need with a range of services including emergency shelters, permanent housing for formerly homeless, educational services, food pantry and meal services, and comprehensive case management.
