ABOUT THIS EVENT:
Due to the current health crisis, this year’s Abby’s House 5K Run/Walk will be virtual! Without the limitations of a physical event, anyone from all parts of the country can get involved and show their support of the women and children who rely on the services that Abby’s House provides! By registering as a virtual participant, you can run, walk or do any physical activity for 3.1 miles with family and friends near and far while helping homeless and low-income women and children find a safe place to call home. The virtual Abby’s House 5K Run/Walk can be completed any time between October 1 and October 17th in ANY location of your choosing. Wherever you are, we will still be united in our mission towards providing homeless, battered, and low-income women, with or without children, a safe place to call home.
Pre-Registration fees (Before September 21):
Individual (age 15+): $25
Children ages (5-14): $20
How can I participate and make an impact?
Proceeds from registration fees, sponsorships, individual donations and group fundraising efforts directly benefit the women and children who call Abby’s House home. Last year, Abby’s House hosted a total of 162 women and 43 children in our supportive housing and overnight shelter. Additionally, over 500 women, with or without children, used our advocacy services through referrals, walk-in appointments, phone calls or participating in Women’s Center activities. By participating in our virtual 5K Run/Walk, you’ll help raise critical funds to help sustain our shelter and supportive housing as well as the advocacy services that the women and children we serve rely on to help them move forward on their journeys towards healing and recovery.
Not much of a runner?
No problem! The Abby’s House 5K can be completed by running, walking, or hiking - complete 3.1 miles of any activity you like wherever you are between October 1- 17th to complete the mileage.
Who can participate?
Anyone and everyone! You can complete the Abby’s House 5K alone or with a group - it’s completely up to you! Your dog can even join you for this year's race! Just get out, get moving and recruit friends & family to join you and please, remember to stay safe!
How do I log my miles and show my progress?
Abby’s House believes in the honor system, so no proof is required for your race completion. However, feel free to track your participation through the use of technology, such as a Fitbit or Apple Watch, and post pictures, videos, etc. to social media using the hashtag #AbbysHouseVirtual5K to share your experience with other participants who are completing the 5K.
