Running HOME for Jacob 5K: when we began planning this event over a year ago our goal was to capture sadness, helplessness, yet a strong energy we all have each year on October 22nd. The 5K was to be an event where families can gather, walk, run, laugh, engage in prevention activities and honor Jacob. We are now more than ever motivated to create a world where kids can grow up safe. Please consider joining us to run HOME for Jacob. In addition to a children's race and a 5K run/walk, we will have many activities for children and families to participate in. HOME: Hope for Our Missing and Exploited extends to all those missing and exploited. Our goal is to raise awareness to the issues of safety, prevention and a unified purpose to create a world where kids can grow up safe!
