The 11th Annual Pettinaro – Knights of Columbus Nun Run 5K presented by DiSabatino Construction Co. & Saul Ewing (it’s a walk too!) is being held 9am Saturday, 9/16/17. 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!
Yes, the Batmobile from the classic TV show will be here, so bring a camera! See Race Details
$40,000 Fundraising Goal
Proceeds from this event will help fund replacement of adjustable beds in our intermediate care units, right here in Newark.
The majority of our beds are over 15 years old and do not allow easy caregiver access as the equipment is outdated. With the procurement of 40 new beds, we are better equipped to accommodate our elderly Residents sleeping needs.
We already know that sleep eludes many of us as we age, especially when we reach our golden years and new beds (and mattresses)
will enhance the comfort of a restful night’s sleep.
We thank all who participated in 2016! You helped us raise over $30,000 to directly address the needs of the residents and Little Sisters who live at Jeanne Jugan Residence.
