Wesley Housing's 5K Run/Walk will take place on June 23, 2019 in Arlington's Bluemont Park. By running for Wesley, you're helping to support our four Northern Virginia summer camps, which are hosted in our affordable housing communities. The children who attend do not otherwise have access to costly, enriching summer activities. In our camps, they are able to combat summer learning loss by engaging in STEAM skills building, reading/writing development, and field trips throughout the region. Help us help our youth make lasting memories and have the best summer yet!
The event features a professional pre-race warm-up & stretch, a professional announcer, live DJ, one of a kind event Wesley Housing gear, a medal for every participant, and an amazing time with friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, and community members who want to give back.
Since 1974, Wesley Housing, a 501(c)3 nonprofit charitable organization, has sponsored the development of:
- 31 communities in Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C.
- 2,500+ total housing units serving over 25,000 low-income individuals

The heart and soul of Wesley Housing’s mission lies in our commitment to combining affordable housing with family programs and supportive services to foster positive development and self-sufficiency for all adults, children, and families. Through our programs, we intend to open more doors to brighter futures and end the cycle of poverty.
