    If you're feeling a little guilty for partaking in the delicious food offered at Falls Fest this weekend, Habitat for Humanity is giving you the opportunity to burn some extra calories.
    This is the fourth year for Habitat's Home Run at Falls Fest.
    You can participate in a one mile fun run, a 5K, or a 15K through the trails of Lucy Park Saturday morning.
    Money from entry fees will go pay for supplies to build the next Habitat home.
    Lauren Correll, marketing director for Habitat for Humanity, says, "[The home] is for a young lady and her three-year-old little boy.  Right now they live with her grandmother.  They're in two bedroom little apartment.  She's ready to ease the burden on her grandmother and get out on her own in a safe neighborhood for her little boy so he can play outside and have a room of his own."
    Registration includes a ticket to Falls Fest.
    For more information, including how to sign up, go to and search "Habitat for Humanity Home Run at Falls Fest."
    You can also call Lauren Correll at (940) 716-9300.
