Virtual Nun Run/Walk 5K Countdown

By Katie Beckmann Mahon, Communications Manager

The Sisters of Saint Dominic of Blauvelt, New York, are again hosting their popular fundraising event, the Nun Run/Walk 5K, on May 15th.


However, this year, an important event update to share is that the Nun Run/Walk 5K has gone virtual!


Even though the Nun Run/Walk 5K has gone virtual, online registration is the same as always, but instead of gathering together on Saturday, May 15th in Blauvelt, you can run or walk at your choice of time and place. Whether you are running in your backyard, park, neighborhood, or a treadmill, make sure to log your distance and time, and it’ll count!


If you’re interested in participating, register online anytime until May 5th. After registering, you will receive a link to submit your time and photos, along with information on how to pick up your official Nun Run/Walk 5K shirt. Afterward, complete your run or walk anytime between midnight on May 8th and noon on May 15th. Unfortunately, we will not be awarding trophies or medals for this year’s event due to present conditions. To register for the Nun Run/Walk 5K, visit our race page.


Another way to support the Nun Run/Walk 5K is by becoming an event sponsor. We’d like to recognize our present sponsors:


· Face Mask Sponsor – The Schaaf Family

· Congregation Shirt Sponsors - Sr. Beryl Herdt, OP; Sr. Pat Horan, OP, and In Memory of Sisters Floretta Beam, Mary David McIntosh, Irene Murphy, Eileen Marie Burke; Francis Dwyer, OSF; and Marilda Joseph, SC.
