St. Vincent de Paul is a busy place! Not only do we have multiple volunteer opportunities, we also offer training, fundraising and public awareness events. We also distribute information about area food drives and other current events of concern or interest.
Easter Egg 5K Run/Walk
We hope you will consider supporting our Easter Egg 5K to be held on Saturday, March 31, 2018.
The 5K will start from Tow Yard Brewery 501 S. Madison Avenue at 10am and wind through the near south part of Indianapolis on a level course. Our vision is that the Easter Egg 5K will become our signature event in the community drawing thousands of walkers and runners from our regional area and beyond. We had almost 1,000 participants in 2017 and our goal is to double that amount in 2018!
Easter weekend is a time when families unite in celebration, so why not do the Easter Egg 5K together? All are welcome … students, families, children in strollers, neighbors, co-workers, serious and not so serious walkers and runners, runners in training for the Mini Marathon… everyone!
