Official Website


Nun Run 2020 is on!

As our family at Little Sisters of the Poor slowly emerge from our COVID-19 lockdown at Jeanne Jugan Residence, we have decided to continue with plans for our annual Nun Run 5k Run/Walk scheduled for September 12th, but with certain restrictions to be compliant with CDC guidelines and for the safety of everyone involved. Registration for the race will be limited to the first 200 entrants to ensure proper social distancing and there will be no day of registration.

NEW LOCATION: Our home is still vulnerable with our elderly family; therefore, we will be moving our 2020 fundraiser event to a new venue - Midnight Oil Brewery at Pencader Industrial Park in Newark.While this event cannot replace the companionship of being together with or Residents at our home, we are forever thankful for your kindness and untiring support during this horrific pandemic of COVID-19.

We will provide more details here as the event nears, including map, directions, parking, etc. This includes guidelines on use of masks while not running/walking and our social distancing plans. Senior Citizens and those with underlying medical conditions should consider taking part virtually and we’ll explain how to best do that.
