This 5K run/walk is in celebration of Ben Banks’ simple but well lived life. Our goals are to celebrate Ben, raise awareness for the Benjamin Mark Banks Jr. Memorial Scholarship, and raise money to fund the scholarship. We hope this will honor Ben, and remind people of the simple pleasures in life, that Ben loved so much. We will spend this day having fun with family, friends, and community, as superhero’s in memory of Ben. Please visit jumetcharitable.org to see Ben’s Scholarship Initiative or to donate directly. Thank you to all, for your continued love for Ben. Forever in our hearts.
