Registration Open and Sponsorships Available for the 12th Annual Seacoast Half Marathon

Seacoast Half Marathon

This year, Cross Roads House has been chosen as the beneficiary of the Seacoast Half Marathon, which will be held on Sunday, November 12th in Portsmouth. All levels of athletes are encouraged to participate in this walk/run event.

The motto of the Seacoast Half Marathon is "Caring for the coast, one step at a time." Each year, 100% of the net proceeds from the Seacoast Half Marathon are donated to carefully selected nonprofit organizations in the Seacoast area. In the 11 years that the Seacoast Half Marathon has been held, more than $890,000 has been donated to local non-profit organizations that serve coastal New Hampshire and Maine.

15th Annual Benefit by The Sea a Great Success

15th Annual Benefit

On May 6, 2017 Cross Roads House held its 15th annual "Benefit by the Sea" Gala with net proceeds of over $320,000! Two thirds of the funding for Cross Roads House comes from private donations.

For fifteen years, local businesses and community members have stepped up to help their neighbors in need by sponsoring the Cross Roads House gala and providing critical operating revenue. Proceeds for this year's gala came from sponsorships, donations, ticket sales and guests in attendance were given an opportunity to make a pledge during a "fund-a-need" portion of the evening after viewing a short video. More than two hundred twenty people attend the formal event and enjoyed a sit down dinner and dancing to the Center Stage Band.

The event included a tribute to Sue and Mike Daigle, long-time Cross Roads House supporters.

Thank you to all the sponsors and donors who helped us exceed our goal this year! Your generosity makes it possible for us to fulfill our mission to help our residents break the cycle of homelessness and move with dignity and purpose to decent, stable housing.
