14th Annual Abby’s House Hybrid 5K Run/Walk

October 14, 2023 @ 9:00 am

Thank you for an amazing and successful Abby’s House 5K! The 14th Annual Abby’s House Hybrid 5K Run/Walk exceeded its fundraising goal this year because of supporters like you! Starting strong on October 7th with virtual participants and ending with an inspiring, sunny race day for in-person participants on October 14th, we welcomed 411 in-person and virtual participants across the U.S. and Canada who completed #FiveToHelpHerThrive in support of our mission.

When we combine individual donations, registration fees, team fundraising efforts, sponsorships, raffle proceeds, and the online auction, more than $70,000, was raised to support women and children who call Abby’s House home!
