Angels of Mercy 5K and 1 Mile Walk

Saturday August 15th, 2020

Rochester, NY

Official Website




Join us again for our annual 5k/1mile fun run/walk! We adapted our fundraiser for the safety and needs of our community last year and it was a great success. We have decided until further notice this is the way to best run our event.... virtual! This race continues to be one of the largest fundraisers for Angels of Mercy NY and we are so grateful fo the continued support. We have been able to serve over 1500 women in the community this year alone by providing them clothing, personal hygiene items, shoes, coats, hats gloves, accessories and resources all while offering a no contact experience. This fundraiser is the best way to help our organization right now as the donations and drives have been extremely generous this year! 

You can choose to run, walk or choose a different event! Just click on activity of choose when signing up if running and walking is not your excersise of choice. Also, if you would rather not participate you can choose to simply donate to AOM. 

We look forward to running and walking with you virtually!


Anytime during August 11th and August 17th 


Choose your own 5k, 1 mile or any distance you want route. You can walk, bike, run, hike or choose "Other" Activity and do whatever you would like! We encourage you to dance, do an at home work out, row, roller blade, the options are endless! 


Where ever you would like! It's your race!

Despite the changes we are all experiencing right now, we are committed to the cause.  This 5K aims to be a cause for change and we welcome anyone to participate with us!. This will be an event that you complete with your family member(s) - you choose the time and place (following local social distancing guidelines of course) on that day to walk, run or roll a 5K or any other distance or physical activity you choose!
