Virtual Run, Walk & Roll

Due to recent developments tied to coronavirus (COVID19), The Run Walk & Roll will now be a Virtual Event! Each year this event has helped raise funds that provide services and social & recreational opportunities for individuals with I/DD, in Delaware. For details on this new format, see below.  

As you may be aware, our beloved Run, Walk & Roll Chairperson, Merry K. Jones, passed away in March. We are taking this opportunity to honor Merry with this event. Your participation and donations will help Merry’s memory live on through the programs for which she donated so much of her time.

When? You can participate anytime during the month of May. Registration will be open for the entire month.

Where?   Anywhere you choose. With a virtual walk, you pick where you do it and what time you start.  You can walk outside around your neighborhood, at home on a treadmill, wherever you can. We ask that you please abide by your state and federal rules and recommendations for social distancing to ensure your health and safety. 

How do I register?  You may send in the registration form attached to the Virtual Run Walk Roll 2020 Brochure or you can register online at:

Do I get a T-shirt? All participants that register by May 15th are guaranteed to receive a T-shirt. T-shirts for those that register after May 15th cannot be guaranteed.

(Pick up dates are subject to change as they relate to COVID-19 regulations.)
