About This Activity

Jarett Wolff was severely injured in a car accidend involving a repeat-offense drunk driver.  Jarett was in critical condition and placed in a medically induced coma for 18 days.  He survived and is on the road to recovery.  Every day almost 30 people are fatally injured in a motor vehicle accident involving a drunk driver; on May 16 we are gathering as a community to "running to raise" awareness of the effects of drinking and driving.  All proceeds will go to the Jarett Wolff family to assist with the vast amount of medical bills, rehabilitation, and future expenses.

The 5k starts at Hiller Park in Johnsburg and is a flat, stroller-friendly course.  Registration is open to all ages.  All registrants receive a free race shirt and a free raffle entry to win some great prizes.  There will also be a 50/50 raffle, post-race fuel and water, free photo downloads, a "Make a Difference" pledge board, music, and more!
