Description

After 20 live annual events, Our House, Our Run: 4 Miler & 2 Mile (or 4M Walk) hosted it's 1st ever Virtual Experience in 2020 with great success! In 2021, with safety at the forefront, we will continue with our new "tradition" of virtually moving towards our common goals. We can now call this a tradition, because while we plan to have a live in-person event again for our 23rd annual in 2022, the virtual components will stay with us going forward and each of you will be able to choose how you participate and support. 

Look forward to lots of social interaction, wellness activities, running and walking competition, fitness achievements, prizes, souvenirs, and an all around fun, friendly, and supportive event!

Our annual community event and fundraising efforts are critical for supporting the adults with disabilities served by Our House and we are most appreciative of your ongoing support. We promise to once again deliver a socially engaging community experience through Our House Our Run! 

Ways to Participate

Our 22nd annual and 2nd virtual version of Our House Our Run features a number of ways to safely participate and support from anywhere!
