Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we made the St. John the Jogger a virtual run.  By signing up, you are a Superhero to the St. Camillus Food Pantry who graciously welcomes your generous support.  This is a direct service ministry of St. Camillus Catholic Church whose goal is to promote food security for members of our local community. God Bless You!

The St. John the Jogger 5K & 1 Mile Fun Run to benefit St. Camillus Food Pantry will start on May Day, running the week of May 1-9 and ending on Mother's Day in VIRTUAL RUN FORMAT!

While a virtual event cannot replace the companionship of being together, we are excited to offer this opportunity to compete virtually while wearing our new COVID19 St. John the Jogger T-shirt.  

Runners participating in the virtual race will submit their time online and compete for recognition. You will be able to see your race results following end of the race period.

The Virtual St. John the Jogger race can be completed at any time, at any location.  You can run, walk, jog, skip, or dance the distance of a 5K (3.1 miles) or 1 mile.  You can complete on your own or as a group. Upon request, an established 5K route is available starting and finishing at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church.

Benefits of a virtual run include: no travel, no parking, no time spent waiting in the porta-potty or food lines!

EXTRA benefit of this virtual run: knowing you are supporting the community through the St. Camillus Food Pantry.

We would love pictures of you for our website. Please submit to Photo Album within the St. John the Jogger Runsignup website.

The St. Camillus Food Pantry is a direct service ministry of St. Camillus Catholic Church. The pantry's goal is to promote food security for members of our local community.  We follow the model of St. Francis of Assisi to serve those who live on the margins of our society with respect for their dignity as our brothers and sisters.

Food security is access to safe, adequate, sufficient, easy-to-use, and culturally appropriate food throughout the year.  Last year, we provided nearly 18,000 emergency food packages. 

We are supported completely by an all-volunteer staff and are continuing to see increasing numbers of families reaching out to us for assistance.

For more information about the pantry, visit our website.

St. John the Baptist KofC supports a parish food collection on the 1st and 3rd Saturday each month with all items and money donated to St. Camillus Food Pantry.

Join us in helping to meet the needs of others in our community!
