Mitzvah Circle is excited to be hosting our 5th Annual Mitzvah Circle Run as a hybrid race. The live, in-person race will be on September 26 at the Delaware Valley University.  The picturesque campus includes an arboretum, equestrian center, dairy farm, and beautiful views.  If you are participating virtually you choose your date, time, location, and distance of your race, just complete it by September 26!  You can begin anytime after you register, although the official virtual race dates are September 19-26.   Help us reach our goal of having a runner from every state!

The 5th Annual Mitzvah Circle Run will allow the community to come together to raise awareness and funds to help our neighbors in crisis due to poverty, homelessness, and serious illness.  The need has never been greater.  Thank you for supporting Mitzvah Circle!
