Friday night nearly 275 racers were signed up for the Rim to Rim Race but officials predict almost 75 people registered just this morning.
What started as a fundraising effort for the CSI Cross Country team – three years ago is a now a staple event for Habitat for Humanity.
Linda Fleming, executive director says "Habitat for Humanity has been around the Valley for about 16 years. We've been a small affiliate just growing and building 1 house a year, this year we have built 3 homes so we are a growing affiliate."
In June Habitat for Humanity and the Lions Club teamed up to build a home not in a month's time – or a week's time but in just five days.
This may have seemed impossible to accomplish but for Fleming setting high goals is nothing new.
"We would like to be able to build 5 to 7 growing into 10 houses a year but that's a ways down the road at that point."
