Your support and prayers are appreciated throughout the year for Jeanne Jugan Residence.

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!

fundraising goal

$48,000 Fundraising Goal

All proceeds from this event will be used to replace the outdated and inefficient commercial walk-in freezer and refrigeration system. The current system has been repaired many times over the past 30 years and now must be completely replaced in order to satisfy the dietary needs of the 80 Residents and Little Sisters who live at Jeanne Jugan Residence. The project is estimated at $48,000 (including labor and equipment). Your participation will allow us to reach our goal!

We thank all who participated in 2014! You helped us purchase a new medical transport van! Each day, approximately 5 of our elderly residents require transportation to medical and physical therapy appointments, so your help is evident daily for our low-income elderly residents.   Register Now
