We are excited to announce our inaugural Nun Run! The 5K (and 1 mile fun run/walk) takes place on Saturday, September 13, 2014, at 8 a.m., at The Cathedral of Mary our Queen. Managed by Charm City Run, the course will include N. Charles Street and the surrounding neighborhoods. Our honorary chairman, His Excellency, Archbishop William E. Lori, will bless the runners at the beginning of the race. All proceeds benefit the Residents of St. Martin’s Home! Click here for more details.
High school students in the Archdiocese of Baltimore were invited to participate in a logo competition for the Nun Run. The panel of judges including Mother Loraine and Mother Alice found it difficult to choose because of the many interesting and creative designs. We are pleased to announce Karina Shaffrey, a junior at Mount de Sales Academy, as the winner of the inaugural Nun Run logo contest and the recipient of a $150 cash prize. Look for Karina’s logo on all Nun Run promotional material! With so many wonderful entries, we chose a second place winner, Sarah Muldoon, also of Mount de Sales. In addition to their first and second place prize, Karina and Sarah were also presented with a complimentary entry fee for the race. Our sincerest thanks to all the students who shared their talents and the art teachers who were instrumental in making this a fun and rewarding project!
A ‘virtual running’ opportunity will be available so our friends, regardless of location, will be able to run with the Nuns and support our Residents! As the date nears, check our website for details regarding ‘virtual running.’
