Family Promise’s OWN fundraising 5K Run & Walk

to prevent & end family homelessness in Delaware

This is our 1st 5K Run & Walk fundraising event, and we have teamed up with University of Delaware’s sorority Alpha Xi Delta to help make this an amazing day of fun and to bring awareness to ending homelessness.

This will be a FREE, fun, family friendly event! For a donation of $35.00 ($25.00 for current University of Delaware students) or more it will help cover the cost of bedding for a child in our program, and you will receive a Family Promise 5K event t-shirt. We are lucky to have our board matching donations up to $11,000, but we are not stopping there if you know any business, person, group, or organization that would be willing to sponsor the event, please send their information our way, or see below for sponsorship information.


If you’re unable to participate for any reason, but still want to support Family Promise, you can simply donate as well.

Why Donate?

All funds raised will be used to assist families experiencing homelessness move into permanent housing. Your donation will help us secure an apartment for a family! As you know, the pandemic has exacerbated an affordable housing crisis while simultaneously weakening the job market, placing many of Delaware's families in precarious financial situations. Consequently, the demand for shelter and case management services for families experiencing homelessness has never been higher. Your donation will help us house families experiencing homelessness in our shelters, in our community, and families currently sheltering at the Hope Center.

Plus, there are other benefits to donating:

  • If you register as a runner/walker, and donate $35 or more you will receive a Family Promise 5K T-shirt and help cover the cost of bedding for a child.
