The Run, Walk & Hops for the Homeless day of events for March 22, 2020 has been canceled.

Because of the increased concern regarding Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), on March 12, 2020, Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker announced the mandatory cancellation of gatherings of more than 1,000 people. Therefore, the Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle has been canceled.

We are grateful to all those who registered as Team Franciscan Outreach participants. Organizers of the Shamrock Shuffle have announced that registered participants will receive a refund for their entry fee. They will be providing updated information to each individual participant.

Franciscan Outreach has canceled the Hops for the Homeless event also scheduled for March 22, 2020.

We appreciate your interest in supporting Franciscan Outreach and the hundreds of men and women we serve each day who are marginalized and experiencing homelessness.

You Can Make a Difference!

All proceeds from the Run, Walk & Hops for the Homeless day of events were to go to benefit our Chicago neighbors in need. You can still make a meaningful difference! Please consider making a contribution to Franciscan Outreach. With your support, we will be able to continue to offer the programs and services that help people experiencing homelessness get the support they need to make lasting changes in their lives.
