Help us provide meals for hungry neighbors in need by participating in Father Joe's Villages' 19th annual Thanksgiving Day 5k. This year, we've gone virtual but we're still raising critical funds to provide warm, nutricious meals each day through our public lunch program and to residents in our programs. With your help, we continue to serve thousands of meals as part of our work to end homelessness, one life at a time.
Particpate by doing the 5K YOUR way! Run, walk, bike, hike, or fundraise your way through from November 26th-December 1st. By reaching fundraising milestones, you can also earn cool swag and prizes - all while helping feed those in need!
2020 Father Joe's Villages VIRTUAL Thanksgiving Day 5K "Your Way"
When: November 26-December 1st
Due to restrictions and health concerns caused by COVID-19, we are unable to hold the event in person. Though we aren’t able to gather in person, we know that the funds raised from Thanksgiving Day 5k are critical in our ability to provide meals to those who are homeless in San Diego. During this challenging time, the needs are more critical than ever.
A virtual event allows you to participate how, when, and where you want! Don’t want to run a whole 5K? Fundraise from your couch! Busy cooking on Thanksgiving morning, take a walk on Friday evening instead! We are so thankful for your support and can’t wait to see what you come up with!
How to Participate:
There are two ways to participate:
1. Walk or Run 5 Kilometers (or whatever distance works for you!) – Grab your family, your dog, or socially distance with your friends to walk or run the course of your choosing.
2. Fundraise Your Way – Set a Fundraising Goal and meet (or exceed) it! With our Participant Guide we provide everything you need to make fundraising a breeze. Plus, you’ll earn great prizes and know you’re helping those experiencing hunger in our community.
