The 16th Annual Run (or Walk) for JUMP fundraiser is set for Saturday, September 28, at the Burlington Waterfront. This is a wonderful family-friendly fitness event with a 5K run, a 1K walk, and a 1K run for kids 14 and under. The 1K walkers send the runers off with cheers — enjoy a quick lakeside walk and return to celebrate the runners as they finish their race. Bring your family and friends – there will be LOTS of great prizes and raffle gifts.
Any Run or Walk for JUMP participant raising $50 or more for JUMP will win a free t-shirt and have the $15 entry fee waived. Local businesses, including many restaurants, donate prizes for the top finishers, top fund-raising team, age group winners, and youth and adult fundraisers. Every participant will have an opportunity to win terrific randomly awarded raffle prizes!
