For the ninth year, the Sisters of St. Francis of Assisi will participate in the Capuchins’ Run-Walk for the Hungry as a sponsor and as a team. This event will be held at Polish Fest on Friday, June 17, from 7:00–8:30 p.m.

Registration is open to join our Sisters of St. Francis of Assisi team as a runner, walker, cheerleader or donor (any amount). The registration fee is $25 for runners, $20 for walkers, $10 for children. Our wrist bands from the Run-Walk will give us free entry to Polish Fest all three days.

All of the proceeds support the Capuchins’ ministry to the poor, the hungry and the homeless. They operate two sites: St. Ben’s Community Meal and the House of Peace. The House of Peace’s Emergency Food Pantry serves over 34,000 individuals each year. St. Ben’s Community Meal serves over 105,000 meals annually. The Capuchins also distribute clothing, hygiene bags, bedding, bus tickets for medical visits and much more.
