Bishop’s 5K is Nov. 18 at Bellevue State Park

Get ready and set to support Catholic Charities with Bishop Malooly at the second annual Bishop’s 5K Run/Walk on Nov. 18, 9 a.m. at the Figure 8 Barn, Bellevue State Park, 800 Carr Road in Wilmington.

“One out of every 10 residents” of the Diocese of Wilmington receives at least one service from Catholic Charities each year, said Richelle Vible, executive director of Catholic Charities. “The Bishop’s 5K is a great way to get involved in the mission of Catholic Charities — providing caring service to the most vulnerable in our community. Bishop Malooly will be at the start and finish line — will you?”

In the 5K (about three miles) runners and walkers will compete for the best time, and will be awarded medals, along with race T-shirts. A complimentary picnic with light food and music will follow the race.

Individuals who can’t participate by running or walking can register to be “Virtual Walkers.”

Registration for the event is $20 prior to race day, and $25 on race day, plus a $2.50 event fee. Register at Bishops5k.com.

Please register for the picnic if you are not running or walking. Visit the Catholic Charities website, www.cdow.org/charities and click “Events” for information.

Established in 1830 as St. Peter’s Orphanage in Wilmington, Catholic Charities’ services have grown from the care of orphans to include care for those facing chronic poverty, homelessness, hunger, mental illness, substance abuse, HIV/AIDS, and teen pregnancy. The agency serves over 100,000 individuals each year throughout Delaware and the Eastern Shore of Maryland.

The school proposes revitalizing the park, adding several turf athletic fields, expanding and upgrading basketball and tennis courts; adding a walking trail; installing an upgraded playground; increasing parking; and perhaps even bringing a dog park to the property.
