DAVIS, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Cannery in Davis is calling all runners! The
New Home Company (“NEW HOME,” NYSE: NWHM), developers of
California’s first farm-to-table new home community, has announced plans
for the inaugural “CanRun,” a 5K and 10K Loop Run plus Kids Fun Run, set
for Saturday, April 23, 2016 at The Cannery. Hundreds of participants
are expected to register for the first annual event, with all proceeds
to benefit the Davis Schools Foundation.
The CanRun will start and finish at The Cannery (1550 Cannery Avenue,
Davis, CA 95616), and the course will also traverse the neighborhood
streets of north Davis, past the coveted Community Park, Davis Little
League fields, North Davis Elementary and Davis High Schools, and along
The Cannery Loop Trail in the 5K. Runners have the opportunity to get in
some additional mileage by registering for the 10K course which will

will begin at 10 a.m. All of the runs will conclude at 11 a.m.

Presented by The Cannery, the beneficiary of the CanRun will be the
Davis Schools Foundation (DSF), a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization
committed to educational excellence for all K-12 students in the Davis
Joint Unified School District (DJUSD) since 2004. DSF works in
partnership with parents, DJUSD and the community to provide grants to
bolster, support and sustain district-wide educational opportunities
that would not be possible with public funds.
Organizations interested in sponsorship of the CanRun and supporting the
Davis Schools Foundation through monetary or in-kind donations (or
services) are welcome. Businesses are also invited to become an
exhibitor at the event. Exhibiting companies will have the opportunity
to showcase, demonstrate or sample products and services to athletes,
event spectators and volunteers. For further information on sponsorships
and exhibiting, please call The New Home Company at 916-771-2223.
Bibs and shirts can be picked up on Friday, April 22, 2016 from 3:00
p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at The Cannery Farm House. Race morning packet pick up
is also available at the start/finish area.
“The Cannery was designed with healthy and sustainable living in mind,
so the CanRun is a natural fit for the community,” said Kevin Carson,
Northern California President for NEW HOME. “The response to The Cannery
from those in Davis, as well as the greater Northern California region,
has been overwhelmingly positive, so we are thrilled to present an event
that will benefit the local public schools that are so vital to the
desirability of the city.”
The Cannery is an innovative mixed-used community, developed by NEW HOME
and designed with a seven-acre Urban Farm on the former Hunt-Wesson
tomato cannery facility at E. Covell Boulevard and J Street, near the
center of downtown Davis.
Visitors now have the opportunity to tour 17 model homes within The
Cannery’s initial five residential neighborhoods, where sales are now
underway and demand is strong. Prices range from the mid $400,000s to
the low $1 millions.
The Cannery features a land plan that is the first of this scale in
Davis in more than 20 years. In addition to residences, NEW HOME has
integrated numerous community amenities, including retail shops called
The Cannery Village, a recreational center called The Ranch House, The
Cannery Amphitheatre, The Farm House Welcome Center and the Urban Farm.
Through a collaborative effort with the Center for Land-Based Learning
of Winters, Calif., the Urban Farm will serve as a state-of-the-art
example of sustainable urban farming and as an agri-classroom for
students and beginning farmers.
