Waymakers’ Way2Go!OC 5K is a family friendly event benefiting Waymakers’ programs that help individuals make their way past conflict and crisis to a place of strength and stability.

Enjoy your 5K anywhere YOU want! This is your virtual race, and we want you to make it whatever works for you. Want to run with a stroller or walk with your pet? Do it! Sidewalks, paths, treadmill, your couch? Do it!  You can choose to run, walk, ride, roll or simply join a team and cheer on your family and friends from the comfort of your home!
