What is the StMU 5K for the Neighborhood?

Proceeds from the StMU 5K for the Neighborhood are used to assist nonprofits serving the needs of residents in neighborhoods surrounding the St. Mary’s University campus.

In 2020, Holy Rosary Catholic Church, which is administered by Marianist priests and brothers, and is adjacent to the St. Mary’s campus, received $10,000 to enhance services and outreach programs in the St. Mary’s Gateway District. Past recipients include the United Way, the Neighborhood Place and St. Vincent de Paul Society. Proceeds from previous 5Ks improved family assistance programs and parenting education services for those in surrounding neighborhoods with limited resources.

What does it mean to Run with Purpose?

Now in our ninth year, we continue our purpose to serve and support our neighbors. Proceeds from this year’s 5K will continue to support the partnership between St. Mary’s and Holy Rosary Catholic Church. The church’s mission is to enhance services, outreach programs and the quality of life in the neighborhoods around the University.
