Jane’s Fight Fund donates about $20,000 per year to local cancer patients with the help of our North Country party-people. To keep our fundraising efforts going forward, our 5k Fun Run/Walk will help bring our community back together, in a safe manner, after a long 2020. We will start at Rainbow Wedding & Banquet Hall, take a tour around downtown Altona, through Feinburgh Park, and back to our Barn Owl Creamery & Grill for ice cream.
Check-in begins at 9am
Run/Walk at 10am
Race capacity is set at 150, so do not delay in registering! To comply with COVID-19 guidelines, we will be doing the following:
●No onsite registration will be allowed. Bib pickup will be held outside under our Brookside Chapel at several tables socially distanced.
●Hand sanitizer will be provided.
●Masks are required and must be worn during the run.
●Start times will be staggered.
●Brannoin will be the official unofficial time keeper….that being said, if you are serious about your times, you should have your own timekeeping method.
Cost to register is $20 ($25 after 4/10) and all proceeds of this race benefit Jane’s Fight Fund. In addition to community members generously organizing their own fundraising efforts to donate to our shared cause, this specific event is inspired and initiated by Teena Collette and her family. Teena’s father, Jerry, was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2005, later turning to bone cancer. After having intermittent instances of remission, the battle continues today. Jerry was a recipient of Jane’s Fight Fund in October of 2020. Being inspired by Jane’s Fight Fund, the Collette family is helping to organize this event as a way to give back and contribute—we thank them!
