On a sunny Saturday, crowds of men, women and children gathered at the Nazareth Motherhouse Campus in Kentucky, where they greeted Sisters, learned about missions and ministries, and joined in a morning of healthy competition and camaraderie. The visitors were taking part in the Run with Mission Nazareth 5K, held on June 4, 2022. This was the first in-person race since the 5K launched in 2019.
The 5K took participants around the campus, starting and ending at the Motherhouse. Along the route, signs and photos offered a glimpse at the global ministries and impact of the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth. Several Sisters and volunteers lined parts of the route waving pom-poms and homemade signs to cheer on the runners, and a few took part in the race themselves. Sangeeta Ayithamattam, SCN, President of the Congregation, said the event brought a lot of life and energy to the campus.
The race attracted nearly 300 participants and will support the Pabalelong Hospice in Botswana.
Loved the pictures and the signs of ministries along the way! Great to see the fun, enthusiasm and creativity in the planning!
There was so much enthusiasm all over campus! Even little children raced😍some were pushed in wagons 👍🏼 So sorry Chris couldn’t be with us. We will see her next year. Thanks to Jen and Jim Rahaak for the donuts.
