Virtual Angels of Mercy 5k & 1 Mile Walk

August 11 - August 17

$25 – $30

Annual Walk/Run to benefit the Angels of Mercy’s Human Trafficking and Domestic Violence-prevention and healing programs!

WHY:
Join us again for our annual 5k/1mile fun run/walk! We adapted our fundraiser for the safety and needs of our community last year and it was a great success. We have decided until further notice this is the way to best run our event…. virtual! This race continues to be one of the largest fundraisers for Angels of Mercy NY and we are so grateful for the continued support. We have been able to serve over 1500 women in the community this year alone by providing them clothing, personal hygiene items, shoes, coats, hats gloves, accessories and resources all while offering a no contact experience. This fundraiser is the best way to help our organization right now as the donations and drives have been extremely generous this year!

You can choose to run, walk or choose a different event! Just click on activity of choose when signing up if running and walking is not your exercises of choice. Also, if you would rather not participate you can choose to simply donate to AOM.

We look forward to running and walking with you virtually!

WHEN:
Anytime during August 11th and August 17th

PROCESS:
Choose your own 5k, 1 mile or any distance you want route. You can walk, bike, run, hike or choose “Other” Activity and do whatever you would like! We encourage you to dance, do an at home work out, row, roller blade, the options are endless!

WHERE:
