About This Activity

Don’t miss Temple Sinai’s third annual Tricia Davis 5K Walk/Run in support of Sinai House, a residential social service program for homeless families in Washington, DC. Proceeds from the Sinai House 5K will directly benefit Sinai House in its mission to enable families to move from homelessness to independence by providing safe and affordable housing, comprehensive social services and financial support.

Celebrate Mother's Day by running or walking as a family and still have time to take mom out to brunch after the race! Register today as a runner, walker or virtual runner (donate without racing). If you register after May 1st, you will NOT be guaranteed to receive a T-shirt. There will also be a 1-mile Fun Run for kids and an award ceremony will take place at the park immediately following the race. Strollers and dogs are welcome, but please stay toward the back of the pack while lining up. For safety reasons, dog leashes must be shorter than 3’ and no extendible/flexible leashes are permitted. You do not have to register your dog, but dogs that are registered will receive a race bib and will be eligible for "The Fastest Dog and Owner Pair" award.

NEW THIS YEAR!  Create your own Personal Fundraiser and enlist family and friends to help you reach your fundraising goal! There will be an award for "Most  Number of Individual Donors", so click on the "Become a Fundraiser" tab on the menu on the left-hand side of the page.
