The ACYOA is pleased to announce the 2nd annual Bishop's 5K, which will take place in October 2020 right near you! The 5K is open to ALL ages. A 5K is the equivalent of 3.1 miles, and you may choose to run, walk, rollerblade, skip, or hop....or a combination of all of them! Just go outside the week of 9/27-10/4 and record your activity. Once recorded, you will upload to our platform and see yourself on the leaderboard. Yes, we are completing this 5K virtually, which means.... anytime & anywhere!
As Primate of the Eastern Diocese, His Grace Bishop Daniel Findikyan envisioned the Bishop's 5K as a way to promote physical and spiritual health. Should you not be able to physically participate, we are accepting donations in place of a registration. Last year all proceeds from the 5K went toward developing future ACYOA programs and ministries, and fully funded the ACYOA Mission Trip.
We have decided out of respectful concern over the situation in our homeland, that we will be directing all proceeds from the ACYOA Bishop's 5K to benefit humanitarian relief efforts in Artsakh, rather than future ministries of the ACYOA. We encourage each of you to use your resources and platforms to share messages from our Diocese on how to take action, contribute, advocate, and pray for the defense of Artsakh and the safety of our people.
