Kappa Delta Shamrock Virtual 5k Run 2021

Fri February 26 - Sun February 28

All PR t-shirts will be available for purchase through Wednesday, February 24th. Please visit our store or click the link above!


The Sigma Lambda chapter of Kappa Delta at Auburn University will host its 28th Annual Shamrock 5k Run to raise money for Prevent Child Abuse America and locally support Special Deliveries of Lee County. The Shamrock Project is a national Kappa Delta program, that both college and alumnae chapters support to raise money for national and local child abuse prevention organizations. Eighty percent of the proceeds will go to local agencies with the remaining twenty percent going to the National Committee for the Prevention of Child Abuse. The NCPCA will use donated funds to continue their efforts to increase nationwide public awareness of child abuse. In cooperation with Auburn University and in an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19, Kappa Delta’s 5k Run will be virtual. This means that participants may run the race from any location of their choice, and they will have from Friday, February 26th to Sunday, February 28th to complete the race. 

Please take a moment to sign up for the race, donate, or visit the store to purchase a PR t-shirt to help support our cause! 

All online registrants receive a complimentary t-shirt with your registration with sizes ranging from S to 3XL. The complimentary t-shirt will ONLY be guaranteed to those who register before Sunday, February 14th at 11:59 pm. **

Race Registration Closes: Wednesday, February 24, 2021 at 11:59 P.M.
