Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity were joined by supporters of Immaculate Conception Parish, Yuma, Arizona for Run with the Nuns, a fundraiser for Immaculate Conception Catholic School. Families were on hand to begin the race on a beautiful sunny morning.

One of Sister Mary Teresa Bettag’s track team students from Yuma Catholic High School came in first. Sister Mary Teresa Bettag came in second overall just two minutes behind the winner. It was a memorable finish! The Run with the Nuns 5K was started in 2014 as a way to both fundraise and promote a healthy lifestyle. People gathered at Gateway Park directly below the Hilton Garden Inn Yuma Hotel to join together for 5K competitive run or fun walk followed by food and drinks, and an awards ceremony.
