About the Abria Life is Wonderful Family Fun Run/Walk/5K

Honor Moms with a fun spring outing on Saturday, May 13th 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM at the Life is Wonderful Family Fun Run/Walk/5K to benefit Abria Pregnancy Resources! Help make it possible for more women to make a choice for life.

Join with the OLG parishioners who are participating and have a fun day by scenic Mississippi River at Upper Landing Park in St Paul - just down from Riverplace - a beautiful park with different routes of varying length. Run competitively, or just for fun, walk, or just enjoy the live music, swing dancing, food truck, kids races (3 for ages 1-11), face painting, mother’s day craft, etc.

Free parking with shuttles are available from St Paul College near the Cathedral!

There will be activities for all ages:

  • food trucks,
  • kids activities- 3 kid’s races, inflatable slide and Mother’s Day card-making tent,
  • live music,
  • swing dancing
  • free parking and shuttles
  • dogs and strollers welcome


Set up a team of your family, friends, coworkers; any age is welcome!  Add OLG to your creative team name, or register individually. No admission charge (there is a $45 fee for the chip-timed 5K if you want to compete) but we encourage you to ask for pledges of support to benefit the services of Abria Pregnancy Resources which works to support moms and dads with an unexpected pregnancy.  There are easy tools for requesting pledges and team members via email links.

From life coaches to parenting education, Abria offers friendship, hope and encouragement though positive and life-affirming medical and personal support services for pregnancy, and into the first years of the baby’s life.
