Description

Join us during the last week of October for our Hibernian Harvest 4 Hunger virtual 5K race.  Sponsored by the Padraig Pearse Division #1 Kansas City Missouri - of the Ancient Order of Hibernians (AOH), we invite runners, walkers, pedaler's and sponsors to participate.  The purpose of the event is to provide funding for the Our Lady of Perpetual Help food pantry (31st and Broadway) as well as the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception's Morning Glory Ministry food program which focuses on homeless vets.

Choose any date between Saturday, October 24th and Sunday, November 1st to complete your 5K any where and any way you like...in your neighborhood, in a local park, or even on your treadmill or bike at home.  After you have completed your 5K, come back to this event on Runsignup.com and post your time on the Events tab!.  Also - be sure and take photo's of yourself and friends and post them to Facebook using the hashtag #AOHH4H.  All participants who sign up before October 16th will receive a Harvest-4-Hunger t-shirt.

All FINISHERS will also receive an entry into our great prize giveaway drawing! Participants who verify completion will be entered into the post-race ‘prize giveaway’, featuring an assortment of great prizes from our sponsors.  (Completion verification can take any form – from a picture of your watch/phone showing your completion, or by manually posting your time on the runsignup page!)  Click here Hibernian Harvest 4 Hunger Facebook Page for more info on the excellent assortment of prizes that verified finishers will have an opportunity to win! 

Hunger is no stranger to the Irish, therefore the AOH 'Hunger Project' was launched in April 2020 in response to the affect of the quarantine on local communities.  Hunger is a very real problem for so many in our Kansas City community, and we are proud to sponsor this race in recognition of the unique challenges facing people of all faiths and backgrounds during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to honor members' Irish ancestors who endured the tragedy of the 19th Century Irish Famine.

The Padraig Pearse Division #1 of the AOH was founded in Kansas City on February 11, 1871, and today is Kansas City's oldest continually operational civic organization.  We are a 501c-3 not for profit organization.  10% of funds raised will be used for race expenses as well as the continuing philanthropic efforts of the Padraig Parse Division.  The other 90% of funds will be divided equally between the Our Lady of Perpetual Help food pantry and the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception Morning Glory Ministry.
