crowd of people wearing purple Abria T-shirts at Lake Harriet in Minneapolis on May 11, 2019
Thank you to runners, walkers, supporters and everyone who participated in some way in the Abria Life is Wonderful event held May 11 at Lake Harriet in Minneapolis. The 10K, 5K, walk and kids fun run event drew more than 1,000 participants from across the Twin Cities and raised more than $85,000 to put a choice for life within reach for local women, teens and couples. It also raised awareness about Abria’s unique approach, authentically encountering with love each woman who comes to us, empowering her to make healthy choices and bringing hope for a brighter future.

This year’s event brought the Abria Life is Wonderful across the river to Minneapolis for the first time. Many participants said how much they enjoyed running and walking around beautiful Lake Harriet. We heard what you said and we’ve booked the location again for next year’s event. Please mark your calendars now for the 5th annual Abria Life is Wonderful event on Saturday, May 9, 2020 at Lake Harriet in Minneapolis.

If you didn’t get a chance to participate in the 2019 Life is Wonderful event, you can still join us in living out Abria’s mission. Visit our Support page for all the ways you can help us reach more local women, teens and couples make life-affirming choices.
