Dear Om Memorial 5K Run & Walk participants, sponsors, donors, volunteers and supporters,

First, we hope your family is doing well in this time of uncertainty.

For the past month, we have been actively working to reschedule this year’s 3rd Annual Om Memorial 5K Run & Walk from May 17th, 2020 to a future date. While we do not have a new date confirmed at this time, we are checking with the park authorities for availability in the fall of 2020. In doing so, we will place the health and safety of all of you at the very top of the list.

If you are registered for the race or walk, your registration will carry over to the new date. If you are a sponsor, we will communicate with you once we have a new date confirmed.

Thank you for your patience and understanding while we work out details. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please send us an email at OmMemorial@gmail.com.
