With consideration to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and prioritizing the well being of 5K attendees, the Om Foundation has opted to turn this year’s event virtual! During the Columbus Day weekend of Friday October 9th through Monday October 12th, we are inviting you to be a part of the event by running or walking in your community or place of choosing (park, tracks, your own neighborhood etc.). Despite not being able to gather together at the park like we have done in the past, the team is still hoping to brighten your day and spread optimism during these troubling times, all the while raising funds for childhood cancer research and broadening the message of Optimistic Om. The foundation is always trying to advocate for positivity amidst adversity and we hope that now more than ever, we are able to achieve this, even though the event may look a little different than normal 😊
Organized by Monroe Indians for Civic Action (MICA) and supported by Agraj Seva Kendra, Indian Cultural Association of Monroe (ICAM), Rotary Interact Club of Monroe/Jamesburg & Guru Nanak Sikh Heritage.
