Welcome to Jack & Jill Children's Center first annual virtual run, RUN FOR THE KIDS, June 19-21!

Run for the Kids, is a race where you get to choose the time, you get to choose the place! Show our families, children, and community members you care by running and/or walking! It's as easy as that! 

WHY VIRTUAL RUN? 

A global threat like COVID-19 affects more than just the infected. A pandemic like this touches every person on the planet, and it presents an opportunity to come together as a global community to help our most vulnerable community members. For many of us, one of life's best gifts is the ability to run. Running/walking exercises both our body and our minds. It heals us in ways we don't quite understand! By participating in Run for the Kids, we are coming together to create a wave of generosity as we mobilize the world through giving and getting fit at the same time! 

Our goal is $15,000 in critical funds so that we can continue mobilizing in our community and raise additional relief funds to help our parents and children who are experiencing the economic impacts related to COVID-19.

*ALL PARTICIPANTS WILL RECEIVE A SPECIAL EDITION FINISHERS MEDAL*

 

HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR TIME (for grand prize only) 

Grand prize winners from each distance category (Male and Female) who submit their time by June 21 will receive a special prize. Virtual race takes place during Father's day weekend and ends June 21 at 11:59pm. 

Once complete, you can send your results through to us at awortsman@jackandjillcenter.org with the subject "Virtual Run Time" - only if you wish to participate in the grand prize and be listed on the website. All participants will receive a medal. 

Grand prize winners will be announced June 22, 2020. 

 

HOW ELSE CAN I HELP? 

Now is a time to think of each other, to connect with each other and to care for each other. This is what Jack & Jill Children’s Center aims to do year-round and even though we are adjusting to a new normal, our mission has not changed. We have ensured 100% staff are employeed, virtual teaching and parenting classes continue, we have hosted mass grocery distributions to our community in need, and continue to support our families by providing emergency funds, food, and essential items like diapers and wipes. Support is needed now more than ever. 

By starting a fundraiser, you are helping change the life of a child and family. Set up a team, and create your goal now! Fun ideas, for every mile completed, raise X $$. Challenge your friends and family to join you! Click below to learn more:
