The 12th Annual Pettinaro – Knights of Columbus Nun Run 5K (it’s a walk too!) is being held 9am Saturday, 9/15/18. 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 400 people came together to make our Nun Run a huge success!
In 2017, the Batmobile from the classic TV show was here. What surprise do we have for 2018? See Race Details
$40,000 Fundraising Goal
Proceeds from this event will directly support the daily needs of our elderly Residents.
We thank all who participated in 2017! You helped us raise $40,000 to help fund replacement of adjustable beds in our intermediate care units, right here in Newark.
The majority of beds were over 15 years old and the outdated equipment did not allow easy caregiver access. With the procurement of 40 new beds, we are better equipped to accommodate our elderly Residents sleeping needs!
