Cancelled: Manna 5K Fun Run for Affordable Housing

At the direction of the National Park Service and local authorities amid the COVID-19 pandemic, we are saddened to announce the cancellation of the 2020 MANNA 5K.  We take the safety of our supporters, staff and community seriously and we encourage everyone to follow the guidelines and protocols put forth by public health officials.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you at the 2021 MANNA 5K, where we will celebrate affordable homeownership in Washington DC. 

Here Are Your Options:

You understand that events are expensive, even when cancelled, and you want us to keep your registration fees to help cover our costs, especially during this difficult time.  We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at next year's 5K.
