The Academy of the Holy Angels Parents’ Athletic Association will host its first Virtual 5K the weekend of May 7-9. Participants are invited to run or walk at a time of their choice and may post progress reports with photos on social media.
This 5K is not a race, but an opportunity for the greater AHAcommunity to unite in achieving the common goal of finishing a 5K together while we need to be apart.
Event organizers are promoting community and a sense of well-being. In addition, sponsors will assist the all-volunteer, parent-run PAA to support athletic programs and facilities at the Academy of the Holy Angels.
“We anticipate tremendous interest and participation as our students come from over 125 towns and our alumnae community extends throughout the country,” AHA President Melinda Hanlon said.
PAA President Kerry Ann Flahive shared her excitement about the Virtual 5-K, saying, "This is really the perfect event for us to host at this time. Everyone is eager to get out and enjoy the warm spring weather and focus on their health after the past year. Because this event will take place virtually, we can welcome not only our current students and staff, but our entire AHA alumnae community from all over the country and beyond.
"This event is about community and well-being, and not about speed or competition. Participants will complete their distance how and where they choose over the course of the weekend and will share their progress using the hashtag #AHA5K. I'm really looking forward to following everyone's progress as they support the AHA community."
