The J & J 5K is a memorial run/walk in remembrance of two special teens that lost their lives in tragic ways. Jathan Patterson & Jayla Phipps are both very special children and even in death, continue to impact those who knew them.
Through the J & J 5K we hope to bring awareness to suicide prevention as well as substance abuse and addiction. Both of these affect most, if not all families in some way. We also want all proceeds from the participant entry fee to go to a J & J scholarship fund which will go directly back into our community to a student or students to help them to pay for college.
