Let's help Catholic Charities provide available services to the needy in our Diocese. 

Did you know that one out of every 10 residents of the Diocese receive at least one service each year from Catholic Charities? The Bishop’s 5K Run/Walk will bring attention and resources to assist Catholic Charities in its continuing efforts to reach out to underserved areas of the Diocese.  This event is a great way for you to participate in the mission of Catholic Charities – providing caring service to the most vulnerable in our community.

Last year, Catholic Charities assisted more than 30,700 individuals in Delaware and Maryland’s Eastern Shore with a variety of essential services including food, clothing, energy assistance, residential and behavioral health programs.  Catholic Charities also runs the Bayard House which is the only licensed residential program in Delaware providing food, shelter, and direct care to at-risk, homeless, pregnant, and newly parenting teens and young women. With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the needs of those served by Catholic Charities have risen exponentially.  

This event helps keep Catholic Charities and it’s resources a viable connection to our communities needs, especially with the pandemic and unemployment at such a high rate.  Your involvement is crucial.

We are also sponsoring a team challenge to all Diocesan Catholic Schools with the highest participants (including family & friends.)  Levels of prizes include $1000 first place, $500 second place, $250 third place!  Get involved and help raise funds for your school!  You only need 15 supporters from your school to qualify your school to win!
