About This Activity

Judith’s Jig Memorial 5k is truly a special event because it celebrates the life of Judith Patterson Gilbert, whom many people in our community will never forget, including her BPW (Business and Professional Women’s Club)  sisters whom which have organized this event.  Judith belonged to many organizations and was one of the founders of High Tech Computing, Inc.  Judith passed away on April 2, 2010 after an eight month battle with pancreatic cancer, but leaves a legacy of kindness, caring, and giving back.


Wether you're a sponsor, runner, walker, or volunteer, you're helping raise funds for three causes that were very near and dear to Judith's heart.  The Yolanda G. Barco Oncology Center who strives to provide the best comprehensive cancer care program possible in a community setting with the lastest technology and physician specialists available and Crawford County Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) who trains and provides citizen volunteers to advocate for the best interests of children who are involved in juvenile court proceedings as a result of abuse and/or neglect.
