The 13th Annual Knights of Columbus Nun Run 5K (it’s a walk too!) is being held 9am Saturday, 9/14/19. 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 a fundraiser and we seek your support. Last year, over 400 people came together to make our Nun Run a huge success!
$60,000 Fundraising Goal
$40,000 proceeds in 2018 helped fund a new roof for the 80 elderly Residents. Thank you so much!
Proceeds from the 2019 event will go toward the procurement of a 14 passenger transit bus/coach, which will accommodate our Residents who need assistance with wheelchair accessibility during various outings such as shopping trips to Walmart and Walgreens, local restaurants and community activities.
These transportation opportunities are essential in maintaining a senior’s wellbeing, whether it be physical, emotional, social or otherwise.
