We invite you to Take 5 with us, and Run, Walk, Block on May 18, 2024, the official day of Armed Forces Day. Runners, walkers, sewists and quilters of ALL ages and abilities are invited to participate! Proceeds from race registrations supports the QOVF mission to cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor.

The Take 5 concept allows you to be creative! For instance, you can run 5 miles, run 5K, walk the dog 5 blocks, or walk multiple 5K (or 5 blocks) intervals with 5-minute breaks. If you’re a sewist or quilter, you can sew 5 quilt blocks, sew blocks for 5 hours, or sew blocks with a “5-chocolates reward.” You get the idea! To learn more about Take 5:

The race is a virtual 5K Race and participants are encouraged to sign up now and complete the race between May 11-18, 2024. Registration fee is $35.00.
