OperaDelaware Charity
Challenge 5K
April 30, 2016, 9 a.m. | Brandywine Creek State Park
Run or walk with us to raise money for OperaDelaware!

Calling all runners AND opera lovers! OperaDelaware is joining the Delaware Charity Challenge (DCC) on April 30 at Brandywine Creek State Park. For this fun, family-friendly event, teams compete to raise money for their favorite causes. The nonprofits that raise the most donations through their teams will win additional prize money to help their organizations.

Help OperaDelaware win! Join the OD team and run or walk with us on race day. Just follow the steps below to register for the Fun Run/Walk, then create a personalized fundraising page to share with friends and family. All registrants will receive an OD 2016 Festival t-shirt, a DCC t-shirt, plus a ticket to the May 17th Blue Rocks Game ("Arts Night @ Blue Rocks"). The OperaDelaware team member who raises the most money will win a special Opera VIP Package.

If you prefer cheering from the sidelines (or your couch), you can still support OD by making a tax-deductible donation. The team that raises the most money will win a minimum prize of $1,000!
