Fun Run



Although we can’t get together in person for our annual NAC Fun Run/Walk, we would still encourage ReTreat Week participants to make sure they get out and enjoy some exercise. There is no registration or charge for this completely voluntary activity.

While you are at it, take a selfie and send it to us via direct messaging on one of our NAC social media channels on Facebook, LinkedIn or twitter. We will then share it with the world.
