Habitat for Humanity works hard to build homes, communities, and hope for those in need. Their vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live. The Habitat Olympics are a fundraiser by the Genesee County Habitat for Humanity. Their dedication to the community has been remarkable. The Olympics provide us an opportunity to support their efforts in Genesee County.

To participate, teams of five compete in construction-related events for medals and of course, team and individual bragging rights. Events are scored, points awarded, and the team with the most points at the end of the day wins! Do you have what it takes?
