Run or Walk Our Race!

Saturday, September 17, 2016 in Newark, DE

The 10th Annual Knights of Columbus Nun Run 5K (itís a walk too!) is being held 9am Saturday, 9/17/16. This 5K walk/race begins and ends on the grounds of Jeanne Jugan Residence in Newark, and the Little Sisters join us for the run and all the fun! This is one of our major fundraisers and we are seeking your support. Last year, over 500 people came together to make our Nun Run a huge success! We know our Tenth Anniversary run will be a bigger and we hope you will join us.

fundraising goal

$40,000 Fundraising Goal

All proceeds from this event will be support the daily needs of the 78 residents who are unable to financially care for themselves. Your participation will allow us to reach our goal!

We thank all who participated in 2015! You helped us replace an outdated and inefficient 30 year old commercial walk-in freezer and refrigeration system to satisfy the dietary needs of the residents and Little Sisters who live at Jeanne Jugan Residence.
