Description

The David Rice Memorial Angel Run & Walk is BACK this year virtually! Holy Angels remains committed to operating with an abundance of safety and caution for the vulnerable population we serve.  As much as we want to gather and celebrate in-person, we are excited to announce the David Rice Memorial Angel Run & Walk will once again be a virtual event. Join us to celebrate the 20th year of running with the angels!

 

Get started with 3 easy steps!

1.            Register here

2.            Complete the distance your way

3.            Share your results with us on social media

 

Whether you walk, run, or prefer to sleep-in, you can still register and receive an original 2021 Angel Run & Walk t-shirt to support Holy Angels mission.

 

OUR STORY IS OUR MISSION

Holy Angels is an independent nonprofit organization dedicated to providing individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities a path to self-fulfillment through education, empowerment, spirituality, independence, and work.

At Holy Angels, clients are provided opportunities to live in the most independent settings in homes integrated in the community. In addition, individuals with behavior or medical needs are served on our beautiful campus in specialized programs. At the Holy Angels Autism Center, children, teens, and young adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder are receiving cutting-edge care through Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).

 

WHERE DOES MY DONATION GO?

Although Holy Angels receives Medicaid funding, there is an annual gap of $1.5 million between the funds needed to properly care for those served and the funds provided by Medicaid.

85 cents of every dollar raised goes directly to care for the residents and program participants whose lives have been entrusted to Holy Angels. By registering for Angel Run & Walk, you come together with a virtual community for a fun event while making a difference in the lives of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities!

WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RACE?

A virtual race is an event that you can run or walk from any location you choose or feel the most comfortable. You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself…or not time it at all!  You can run or walk on your own, or with friends!  Once you complete the distance, share your results and “Finisher Photo” before the end of April 24th with us on Facebook or Instagram @LAHOLYANGELS to say #IRunForAngels.

 

CAN I STILL RUN WITH A TEAM OR A GROUP?

Please practice social distancing if you participate with a group.  Be sure to limit the size of your group according to the current local guidelines of where you are. Have fun with friends and stay safe!

 

DO I HAVE TO RUN OR WALK ON APRIL 24?

No, you can pick the day and time that best fits your schedule!  We encourage everyone to participate sometime between Saturday, April 17th and Saturday, April 24th. To qualify for the awards and get in on the fun virtual community, be sure to share your results with us on social media that week.

 

CAN I WIN ANYTHING?

Yes, of course! Be sure to join our Facebook event page for updates!
