What is the HoBOOken 5K?

The HoBOOken 5K Halloween Run to End Homelessness is The Hoboken Shelter’s biggest fundraising event of the year! Founded in 2010, it is Hoboken’s one and only costumed race and one of Hoboken’s largest races!  This year we’re going virtual! 

Why support HoBOOken 5K?

100% of the proceeds from the HoBOOken 5K go to the Hoboken Shelter, which is currently on the frontlines of the fight against COVID-19.

The Hoboken Shelter’s mission is to be a community partnership that transforms lives by providing meals for the hungry, shelter for the homeless, & services to support people to become housed.

They shelter 50 people nightly, serve over 500 meals daily, host 1,000 showers weekly, and provide such support services as food, shelter, case management, counseling, job and life skills training, creative arts workshops, emergency homelessness prevention grants, & permanent supportive housing solutions.

These services help our homeless guests develop the skills needed to gain employment, achieve independence, and re-integrate into the community.

The Hoboken Shelter’s ultimate goal is to end homelessness one person at a time!
