To help replenish food pantry shelves at the Wesley Community Service Center in Portsmouth, Project Life’s Journey will host a Virtual 5K “Race in Place”, May 16 at 9:00 a.m.

Since 1937, the Wesley Community Center has addressed community needs and social issues for underserved residents in Portsmouth’s Southside communities. Since the outbreak of coronavirus, the center has struggled to keep up with the demand for operating its food pantry for the neighborhoods it serves.

Proceeds from the race registrations and online donations will benefit the community center’s food drive, along with other efforts to support Hampton Roads communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. Registration is $35 for adults and $25 for youth age 12 and under. Beginning at 9:00 a.m. on race day, participants run at home or in their neighborhoods, and then log their time online at the end of the competition. Participants will receive a race t-shirt and a finishers medal.
