Register now for Saint Leo Run Toward Justice 5K

Saint Leo University’s Social Justice Committee is sponsoring the Saint Leo Run Toward Justice 5K to benefit local organizations that promote social justice initiatives throughout the community.

The virtual 5K race day is Martin Luther King Jr. Day (January 17, 2022). Participants may run the 5K any day between January 1, and January 21, 2022. You can run, walk, or use any mobility assistance device to complete 3.1 miles.

All skill levels and abilities are welcome! Whether this is your first or 100th 5K, this race is for you.

Since this inaugural Run Toward Justice 5K is virtual, you can participate wherever you are located. Run or walk along a favorite trail, the beach, a neighborhood, or jump on a treadmill.

Registration is $30 through Sunday, October 31. Beginning Monday, November 1, the registration fee is $40. Participants will receive a Saint Leo Run Toward Justice 5K T-shirt and a certificate of completion.

The registration fees from the 5K will go to the Migrant Education Program, which provides services to migrant students and their families through Hillsborough County Public Schools. Migrant families travel extensively throughout the United States to harvest fruits and vegetables. As essential workers, they provide the food to feed the nation despite hardships of their own. Challenges that the MEP helps mitigate are academic, health, social, parent engagement, and family literacy.
