A NUN RUN 2011 CHALLENGE

The following is NUN RUN 2011 CHALLENGE: It is our firm hope that each state in our country will be represented in NUN RUN 2011!  As of February 19th, representatives from 36 states have registered as shadow participants!

In case you aren't familiar with what it means to be a shadow participant: the gist of it is quite simple: Register for the Nun Run as a shadow participant!  Then a race shirt and race number will be mailed to you.  Then you can take part in the run or walk wherever you are!  You can email us photos from your run and your race times and they will be posted on our website.  As shadow participants, you can take part in the 10K Run, 5K Run/Walk, or the 1mi Walk!

No matter where you are, you can be part of Nun Run 2011!  

Pass the word around to your family and friends - especially those living in the states mentioned above.  Let's see if we can get every state in our beautiful country 'running so as to win'! 

God bless America!

"Start spreading the news...NEW YORK, NEW YORK!"

We just got an email from our (awesome, fantastic, dynamic and wonderful) media connection, Kim Cecere - and look where the Nun Run is being advertised now!  Yes, PRNewswire picked up the press release about the Run and put it on the giant marquee in TIMES SQUARE

We can hardly believe it, so...

The Sisters are HOME!

To all of you who viewed EWTN's Life on the Rock...didn't the Sisters do a wonderful job!  We're so proud of them.  Miss the Show?  No worries...here's a link to watch on EWTN's YouTube channel

We had a wonderful response from the show - over 2500 hits on the website in 2 days!  It actually overloaded our server.  So if you were having problems getting through to our site or registering for the Nun Run, we are so sorry.  All is well now.  So please revisit the site and register today for the Nun Run!

In addition to being on Life on the Rock, Sr. Marie St. Paul and Sr. Esther Marie spent some wonderful days with our Sisters at Our Lady of the Angels Monastery.  What a great few days to catch up and enjoy the company of our beloved Sisters in Alabama.  In the slideshow below, you can enjoy photos of some of the sisters there.
