Join Our Lady of Joy Parish and Knights of Columbus for this inaugural 5K Run & Walk, benefitting those in need across Greater Phoenix.
The Race for Joy will take place on April 7, 2018 at Our Lady of Joy Parish in Carefree, Arizona. An awards presentation and pancake breakfast will follow this event.
The Our Lady of Joy Conference of the St. Vincent de Paul Society has helped those in need across Carefree, Cave Creek and North Scottsdale for many years. This ministry strives to connect our calling from God to serve the needs of His people. The mission of the Foothills Food Bank and Resource Center is to provide food referral information and financial assistance to individuals and families in the Foothills area.
These two wonderful organizations are composed of people who give their time and resources to help those in need. We ask for your support so that you too may participate in this great mission. Please join us in supporting everyone as we “Race for Joy”!
