The Bishop's 5K Run/Walk

Nov 19, 2022 - 08:00 AM

Saint Mark's High School 2501 Pike Creek Rd, Wilmington, DE 19808


Join us Saturday, November 19, 2022 for the Bishop’s 5K Run/Walk to benefit the Catholic Charities in the Diocese of Wilmington.

Walk to Serve! Help Catholic Charities provide available services to the needy in our Diocese.

Did you know that one out of every 10 residents of the Diocese receive at least one service each year from Catholic Charities? The Bishop’s 5K Run/Walk will bring attention and resources to assist Catholic Charities in its continuing efforts to reach out to underserved areas of the Diocese. This event is a great way for you to participate in the mission of Catholic Charities – providing caring service to the most vulnerable in our community.

Last year, Catholic Charities assisted more than 80,000 individuals in Delaware and Maryland’s Eastern Shore with a variety of essential services including food, clothing, energy assistance, residential and behavioral health programs. Catholic Charities also runs the Bayard House which is the only licensed residential program in Delaware providing food, shelter, and direct care to at-risk, homeless, pregnant, and newly parenting teens and young women. With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the needs of those served by Catholic Charities have risen exponentially.

Walking either in person or virtual helps keep Catholic Charities and its resources a viable connection to our community needs, especially with the pandemic and unemployment at such a high rate. Your involvement is crucial.
