JUMP – the Joint Urban Ministry Project – has organized the annual “Run – or Walk – for JUMP” for this Saturday morning, September 23 to start from North Beach on Burlington’s Bike Path. The event, which raises much needed funds for JUMP’s direct service programs, includes a 5K Race for all ages with prizes for the the top runners, male and female; a 1K Race for Kids 13 and under; and a 1K Walk for all ages! The walkers cheer on the 5K and 1K runners as they start – and complete their walk in time to cheer for the runners as they finish up the race. Raffle prizes and refreshments follow the event for all participants – walkers and runners!
Assisting more than 40 Vermont low-income households each week, JUMP is a very important local mission that we support with space (the JUMP Drop-In Center is in our Dining Room, Tuesday through Friday mornings), volunteers, financial support from our Mission budget ($8,000 this year), and by supporting JUMP’s special events.
Please join our “First Church Run – or Walk – for JUMP Team!” Online registration is open now: please use this LINK to join our team as a runner or walker, or to donate in support of our team! There are paper registration forms available at church or by emailing Lucy Samara. Questions? please contact Director of Outreach Ministries, Lucy Samara. Thank you!
