About This Activity

2020 MCC Run For Relief *** NOTICE *** The In Person Michiana Mennonite Relief Sale is going virtual this year and so our Run For Relief is following suit ***

Because we recognize the public health threat of such a large gathering during a pandemic, we on the Board of the Michiana Mennonite Relief Sale have decided to cancel the in-person Relief Sale in 2020, held at the Elkhart County 4-H Fairgrounds on September 25 and 26. But we will still fulfill our commitment to meet MCC’s needs for funding through new and creative alternative events.

You can still do a either a 5k Run or 2k Fun Walk any time of your choosing between 8:00 AM Saturday morning September 26, 2020 and Sunday PM September 27. Choose the venue of your choice. Upload your time to the Run website before Sunday at 8:00 PM.

One-hundred years ago, the Mennonite Central Committee was formed out of a desire to meet the urgent, life-sustaining needs of persecuted and starving Mennonites in Ukraine during the Russian Civil War. Taking to heart its mission to walk alongside the vulnerable, this newly formed relief group soon after began responding to the needs for relief throughout the world. In this time of economic downturn and pandemic, MCC will be facing particularly great challenges in fulfilling this mission to serve those in need in over 50 nations throughout the world. Your support in signing up for this run / walk and any donation you feel led to give is coveted by MCC.

There will be no T-shirts offered this year.

There will be no awards this year other than comparing notes on who ran or walked along side you virtually this weekend.
