Shelter Strong

Join RV Habitat and Habitat Youth,  families and friends, for a week of sheltering STRONG!

We can get through this period of sheltering-in-place by staying positive, supporting one another and sheltering STRONG! Join us during the week of April 19th to do something really positive for yourself, your family and your community.

Habitat Youth

Habitat Youth is a dedicated team of nearly 300 students from eight Habitat service groups representing local high schools in Hunterdon and Somerset counties. They have created a virtual community fitness week – Shelter Strong.

About Shelter Strong

The purpose of this event is to help individuals and families stay physically fit, build virtual camaraderie and use their time to support the RV Habitat mission of providing affordable home ownership opportunities to build strength, stability and self-reliance for area families. Your participation will build hope and transform lives in our local community!

We invite you to be a part of SHELTER STRONG. Together, we can help others SHELTER STRONG in the future.

How does it work?

SHELTER STRONG is a week of movement-based activity that you choose.

Walk-Run-Pedal-Dance-Row-Yoga, however YOU like to get moving, do it!

Pledge $10, $25 or $50 to help Raritan Valley Habitat for Humanity, build strength, stability and self- reliance through shelter. Registrants can make an even greater impact by asking friends and family to sponsor their participation.

Once you register for the event with your pledge to SHELTER STRONG, we’ll invite you to a private Facebook group where we’ll share information and guidance for the week.

During the week of April 19th to 25th, all participants will take part in any movement-based activity that you choose. Each day during the event will have a suggested fitness activity, but You decide how you want to move and how often. Outdoor activities are welcome, provided they are singular or same-household member activities, at least 6 feet apart from others.

Habitat Youth will get participants ready and motivated with a pre-event kick-off on Saturday evening, April 18th at 7pm.  

Prizes will be awarded to those who share the most-liked photos and/or videos of their Shelter Strong experiences throughout the week on social media using the hashtag #RVHabitatShelterStrong. A prize will also be given to the participant who generates the highest level of donations. All participants will receive a virtual certificate of completion.
