The Homeless Prevention Center is launching its 25th annual Spring Sprockets & Walk-Its event at Pine Hill Park in Rutland.

Saturday, May 4 at 10 a.m.—RUTLAND— Most days the Homeless Prevention Center (HPC) is focused on getting people indoors and keeping them in housing, but Saturday, May 4 that’s being flipped as the local nonprofit hosts its third annual Spring Sprockets & Walk-Its fun ride and walk at Pine Hill Park in Rutland.

“This is our celebration of spring, of getting back to those activities we enjoy as a community, and of these fantastic trails at Pine Hill Park,” said Angus Chaney, executive director of HPC. “It’s been an intense couple of years for the growing number of Vermonters we work with. One thing we notice after people secure housing and have their emergency needs met is the importance of community, fun, outdoor time, a little exercise. Life is more than just stably existing, right?”

Spring Sprockets also marks 25 years of HPC serving the people and communities of Rutland County.  The all-ages outdoor event runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and features a bike or walk scavenger hunt scramble with prizes, social rides, bike clinic by 350 Rutland County, and bike art from Hearthunder Arts Collective. DJ Bill Moore will keep the music and dancing going.
