Run with joy to bring joy!

To keep our dear racers safe during the COVID-19 Pandemic the third annual Joy Run 5K is a Virtual Race! This year we’ve also added the Miles of Joy Challenge collaborative activity! 

Both events raise crucial funds for Operation Joy, a charity initiative of Child and Family Focus to provide additional support for our child clients and their families above and beyond our normal emotional and behavioral health programs. For more about Child and Family Focus and Operation Joy, see

Joy Run 5K will be held virtually from 10/3/20 to 10/17/20. Participants may run the race at any point in that two week period including 10/17/20, which is our annual race day. 5K racers are automatically registered in the Miles of Joy FOR FREE and can add their 3.1 miles to this goal, plus more!

The Miles of Joy Challenge
is a collaborative activity in honor of the 296 families which Operation Joy served last year. Participants will all add their logged miles to reach a shared goal of 2,960 miles traveled! That’s 10 miles for each family served. An amazing donor has promised an additional $1,000 when we hit 2,960 miles! Walk, run or strut as much as you can or as short as you choose—every mile helps! 


Registrants for the Joy Run also receive…
