Are you up for the challenge, Victoria?

Habitat for Humanity Victoria is hosting a fun, FREE family-friendly event this Sunday, August 23rd and you’re invited!

In honour of their latest build project in North Saanich, Habitat for Humanity has created a physically distanced day of celebration where visitors can learn more about their current build, tour the site and compete for tons of fabulous prizes – all while helping raise funds for eleven local families.

The perfect all-day activity for family and friends to take part in while maintaining their social bubble, it all kicks off this Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

How it works

First, you head on over to the Habitat for Humanity Victoria page to register (make sure you pick a fun group name!)

On the day of the event, registered groups will receive a scavenger hunt challenge card to complete in a safe, independent way around the Peninsula.

Each challenge card completed will be entered to win prizes from local businesses including items from Canadian Tire, Cinnzeo, Cobs Bread, Dairy Queen, Fairways Market, Heart Pharmacy, Kernels Extraordinary Popcorn, Mayfair, Pharmasave, Save-on-Foods and Victoria Bug Zoo.

Also, on the build site at Bakerview Place they will be guided tours, information on Habitat’s programs and some additional fun activities for groups.

Here’s what your registration gets you

  • Challenge card
  • Entry to win prizes
  • Guided site tour
  • Other activities by donation
  • The opportunity to meet Habitat’s newest families along the way

All funds raised will go directly towards the materials needed to complete eleven homes which are currently in construction, and to help local families in need of an affordable place to call home!

Habitat for Humanity Victoria is a registered charity that brings communities together to help families build strength, stability and independence through affordable homeownership.

Founded in 1990, Habitat Victoria has built 23 homes locally and served 27 families.

Through volunteer labour as well as donations of money and materials, Habitat for Humanity builds safe, decent and affordable houses alongside the future homeowner. Each family invests 500 hours of their own labour into the building of their home and the homes of others.
