October 1 @ 9:00 am - October 17 @ 12:00 pm
Virtual Event

Due to the current health crisis, this year’s Abby’s House 5K Run/Walk will be virtual! Without the limitations of a physical event, anyone from all parts of the country can get involved and show their support of the women and children who rely on the services that Abby’s House provides! By registering as a virtual participant, you can run, walk or do any physical activity for 3.2 miles with family and friends near and far while helping homeless and low-income women and children find a safe place to call home. The virtual Abby’s House 5K Run/Walk can be completed any time between October 1 and October 17th in ANY location of your choosing. Wherever you are, we will still be united in our mission towards providing women, with and without children, a safe place to call home.

Awards will be given to the overall top male and top female finishers, as well as the top male and top female finishers in the following age categories: Under 18, 18-29, 30-39,40-49, 50-59, and 60-69, and 70+.

Get your family and friends involved by creating a personal fundraising page here and then share the link with your network. Each and every gift goes a long way in aiding a woman to reclaim and rebuild her life. All gifts directly benefit the shelter, housing, and advocacy programs that are available to women and children at risk of being homeless in our community.
