About Merakey Virtual 5K

Join us for our first annual Merakey Virtual 5K! On Thursday, April 1, 2021, we’ll kick off a month of running, walking, hopping, jumping, scooting, cycling, or skating – a 5K the Merakey way…with all your heart and soul.

Beginning on April 1, we’ll have fun and raise money to support the individuals and families we serve.

Either solo or with a team, find your own 5K groove. Whether you want to hop, hoola-hoop, run, walk, or scoot, we want you to be part of this event. Register today to help us reach our goal of raising $100,000 to support our neighbors.
