Donation Based

Dear Friends of the Jim Dunn Run:

Running at a Distance…. Together for a purpose!   As we navigate through the day to day changes of our current situation, we have decided to keep everyone safe by creating a virtual event for our annual Jim Dunn Run.

Our goals and objectives remain the same except we will not be able to hold the event in person on Friday July 17th.  Runners and walkers will be able to participate in the event at their convenience anytime between July 9th through July 16th and will submit times to us electronically.  Sponsorship mile marker will be placed along the annual route beginning July 9th and will remain in place until July 16th.  We will have the posted results by noon on Friday July 17th.

SteppingStones as a co-benefactor and organizer of the event is a local non-profit whose mission is to empower individuals with disabilities through year-round sports, recreation, and educational programs.  Building self-esteem, confidence, and life skills.

The event has benefitted 34 local high school athletes through scholarships, and we will continue this tradition by overcoming current obstacles…. This year, we will be promoting our 2020 Graduation Class through social media and tributes….

How can you help?   Consider a $200 donation for a mile marker.  Also, with each registration, we would like to include coupons and “swag” for each participant.  Please consider donating a coupon or an offer that can be claimed at your place of business.   We know these are difficult times and we want to support local businesses as we have in the past.  We reach over 1000 past participants with our social media and emails.  Any offer will be greatly appreciated!
