A Nun Run Participant – who has not missed a Run yet – has this to say:

“The Nun Run is my favorite event of the year! It has all the latest and greatest race technology, and has such a friendly feel!  To have such fun, get fit, and raise funds for the Poor Clares – who could ask for anything more!!!”

So you may be wondering: How can I get involved?

A teacher from OLMC who rallied a good many of her elementary students to participate in the race!

One of the amazing things about the Nun Run is the creativity of its participants!

In the past we’ve had teachers rallying their classes, grandma’s raising over $1,000 for the cause, parish youth groups volunteering, Knights of Columbus stepping up to help and so on!

Each individual and group are encouraged to get involved and help make the Nun Run a successful fundraiser and a fun event!

Here’s a few ideas for you:

  • Volunteer to register participants at your parish after Mass.

    We invite parishoners (with the permission of your pastor) to set up a table at your local parish to have folks register for the Nun Run and to hand out info.  Take a laptop and have folks register right there and/or print out the downloadable mail in registration form).

  • Hang up and hand out Nun Run Flyers.

    Request some Nun Run flyers to hang up in your local area (use contact form below).  We will mail them to you as soon as they are available. 

  • Become a Sponsor (or help us find Nun Run Sponsors).

    Nun Run Sponsors are the backbone of the race.  This is a unique opportunity for corporations as well as individuals to support the Nun Run on a large scale.  For corporations this is a wonderful opportunity to reach a broad and diverse audience.  For individuals it is a beautiful way to honor the memory of a loved one or favorite saint.  In the past individuals offered sponsorship in honor of St. Peregrine (for cancer patients) and for the Holy Souls (as a means of interceding for our loved ones).

  • Help us find post race refreshment donations

    Snacks such as granola bars/sports bars, as well as fruit such as bananas and oranges!  Let us know what you would like to bring using the contact form below.

  • Rally your youth group or parish group to join in the race, sporting parish regalia

    This is also a fantastic way to win the parish pride award by bringing a big parish group…and, another bonus, what a great way to promote vocations!  There are happy nuns, happy priests, and happy families all around! 

  • Make the Nun Run a mini family reunion – bring the whole clan and have a blast!

    Let’s face it – Phoenix in March is the perfect place for a family get together! – and to plan it around the Nun Run…WHAT FUN!

  • Have a bake sale to help support the Nun Run

    Really, what could be better than a bake sale for a 5K – you’ll run off all the calories you consume while testing your baked goods 🙂

  • Help us spread the event on social media

    Get on your facebook page, tweet about the Nun Run to all your friends!  Encourage everyone to come and join in the fun!  With so many social media outlets, you can be a great help to us in spreading the word about the Race!
