Get ready. Get set. GO…put this date on your calendar NOW:

OCTOBER 3rd is this year’s Orphan Day 5K at Ridley Creek State Park.

Compassion Corps will host this event for the 5th consecutive year and we’re gearing up to make it the best one yet!

With Bryn Mawr Running Company managing race details, the serious runners will be in for a fun challenge. For those who want to walk and talk with friends and family as they enjoy the course, the event easily accommodates a more relaxing experience as well. It’s the perfect event for the whole family! Register Today!

The Cause

Adult registration for this event is $30 and that’s no coincidence. It takes $30/month to send a Liberian or Ugandan child to school. That amount not only covers their tuition, but also their IMG_0230uniform, school supplies, and lunch each day. The money raised from this event will help sustain our student sponsorship program.

If you are personally interested in sponsoring a student year-round, please visit our program site or contact us for more information.

Features of This Year’s Orphan Day 5K:

  • Chip timing for more precise resultsrunners on the course (1)
  • Awesome prizes given for winners in each age category
  • The opportunity for participants to do their own extra fundraising

Our goal is to raise $7,500 for our 5th year! Reaching that goal would mean more than doubling our numbers from previous years, so get busy inviting friends and family and 5K_runnersstay tuned for the rollout of the new option to also raise additional funds for the cause, outside of the registration fee.

Race registration will open in June. Check back soon for more information on our event page. And we’ll see you on October 3rd!
