The idea for Zoe’s Race was sparked in 2009 when Erika Nestor began a remodeling project to make her home accessible for her daughter Zoe. Zoe, who is now a teenager, is in a wheelchair as a result of a near drowning accident when she was 18 months old. During the process the Nestors were surprised to learn that there were very limited funds available to assist families with remodeling costs related to accessibility. Although they were grateful that they were able to make their home accessible, they worried about other families who may not be so fortunate. In an effort to make a difference, Erika teamed up with Howard Center and Zoe’s Race was born.
Howard Center’s Zoe’s Race is a 1K fun run, 5K walk/run, and 10K run, designed to raise funds for local families who are in need of creating accessible homes for their children. To date, Zoe’s Race has raised over $200,000 and has helped 21 local families to make their homes accessible.
