About This Activity

 Please join us for Jassac Charitable Foundation's Inaugural 2k/5k Run/Walk to promote health and wellness in Chicago's south suburbs.

Part of JCFI’s mission is to promote community awareness of health concerns to individuals and families. Your support will help bring awareness to fight hunger, to advocate for the homeless and to improve healthy lifestyle habits. We are ready to be a catalyst for change. Join us on October 1!! All ages and athletic abilities are welcome! Let’s get physical!

October 10th is Homeless Awareness Day and the whole month of October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. We will be supporting South Suburban Family Shelter  (SSFS) and South Suburban Public Action to Deliver Shelter (P.A.D.S.) by accepting donations of toiletries and clothing.  Both organizations help clients gain better options in their life with compassion and dignity.
