I just received this invitation from the Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration in Arizona. This is a worthy cause and hey, if you don’t live too far from Tempe, consider joining the fun!
March 12th is our 2nd Annual Nun Run! It is hard to believe all that the Lord has accomplished since our 1st Annual Nun Run last year! May He be praised! In October 2010, we moved to Tonopah, and in May 2011 the new Chapel will be consecrated!
The funds raised from NUN RUN 2011 will go into our Monastery Building Fund, which will be used to build our new cloistered monastery that will house 28 nuns! So how can you be a part of turning this dream into a reality?
(1) Please donate at my newly created fundraising page. The competition is on to see which Sister will raise the most funds for the cause! (All in sisterly love, of course!)
(2) Register to participate in the Nun Run. You can join in the fun on March 12th in Tempe, AZ…or as a shadow participant you can run wherever you are. Simply register as a shadow participant and a race shirt will be mailed to you!
(3) Become a Nun Run Fundraiser. This year we have an awesome incentive prize: All fundraisers who raise $150 or more will receive a beautiful fleece blanket with the Nun Run emblem embroidered on it. Also, largest in-state fundraiser will win “Dinner With the Nuns” at Serranos Mexican Restaurant. Largest out-of-state fundraiser will receive a nun-made Souvenir Gift Basket! The race is on . . .
Thank you, in advance, for however you are able to participate in Nun Run 2011! Above all, please keep this event’s success in your prayers.
With a promise of prayers in return,
Sr. Mary Fidelis
