NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Hundreds of people hit the trail in Nashville to Hike for the Homeless.
The 13th annual event was held at Edwin Warner Park on Saturday. The event raised money for Safe Haven Family Shelter.
Safe Haven has been the only shelter-to-housing program of its kind in Middle Tennessee that accommodates families, and the money raised will go a long way.
“The money we garner today will go to transformative, life-changing services for families experiencing homelessness,” said Rachael Wilkins, Development Director. “We can service up to 50 families at a time, so that translates to 83 families annually.”
Organizers said the event keeps growing, and this year they raised more than $124,000.
NewsChannel 5's Vicki Yates served as emcee of the event.
