Habitat for Humanity hosts 'Walk of Faith' in Uptown Columbus

COLUMBUS, GA  (WTVM) - Runners in the Fountain City are lacing up for a race in Uptown Broadway all to raise awareness for the local Habitat for Humanity chapter and those in the community who benefit from the volunteer work.

Today's "Walk of Faith" run hopes to bring in members of all backgrounds in the community to volunteer their time and help Habitat for Humanity's mission to help those with housing needs.

This is the third year the local chapter has hosted the run.

The Columbus chapter started in 1984 and has since then built 300 affordable houses for those seeking shelter.

All the while, they've reached out to the community asking for more people to help them address the housing issue.

Everyone, they say, is invited to come out and join them on this 10k run along uptown and the Riverwalk.
